VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  A south Georgia school superintendent is retiring.

Dr. Steve Smith has been the superintendent for Lowndes County Schools for nine years.

His retirement date is January first, but he says he'll work part time through July of next year. He says he won't change his work ethic, just his salary which will be a savings for the school system.

"As superintendent if I could do something to assist and reducing the cost of operating the system and I can through retirement and coming back to work on a 49 percent basis then that's what I need to do," said Lowndes County Superintendent Dr. Steve Smith.

His wife retires this year. Smith says they do plan to do some traveling. The school system is now searching for a new superintendent.
