Krause, who was employed by the city as recreation director, reserve police officer and grounds keeper for 14 years, handed Mayor Rusty Young her resignation letter during the employee reports portion of the meeting. Council members handed the letter around, but didn’t read the contents aloud.

Nelson resigns, Swisher named principal

Bill Nelson

To say the motion made at the end of the Smoky Valley USD 400 meeting caught this reporter by complete surprise would be quite an understatement.

A motion to accept, with great regret, Bill Nelson’s request for his resignation at the end of the current school year was approved. It is not known what Mr. Nelson will be doing following his resignation but we have been told that he has several options that he is still considering.

At the same time, Ky Swisher was chosen as the new Principal at SVHS beginning with the 2019-20 school year and Garrett Scritchfield will be moving over from his Smoky Valley Middle School Principal position to be the new Vice-Principal and Activities Director at the high school.
