East Jackson Middle School will start the next school year with a new principal.
Frank Sarratt, who has been the principal at the school for three years, submitted a resignation letter June 2 to the Jackson County Board of Education. The board accepted his resignation during a brief called meeting Thursday.
Sarratt’s last day at EJMS will be June 30. He cited family health and medical issues in his resignation letter.
“East Jackson Middle School will always hold a special place in my heart,” he wrote.
“Perhaps it is because of the significant challenge it presented in 2005,” he continued. “Perhaps it is because of the tremendous success we enjoyed in each of the following years. In either case, I am delighted to report that East Jackson Middle School is presently on a solid foundation.”
