|When graduation time rolls around next spring, Annandale Superintendent Steve Niklaus will join the Class of 2017 in saying his farewells to students and staff.|
Niklaus, 64, announced in an email to school staff on Wednesday, Nov. 23, that he will retire at the end of the academic year after 25 years as superintendent and 31 total years with the Annandale district. His current two-year contract ends on June 30, 2017.
"Each year that I was here we had people eligible for retirement. Many would stop by here to talk about it. I've learned over the years that people know when it's time," Niklaus said. "I knew in September that this would be a good time for me to go."
