ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A long time Dougherty County School Board member is leaving the board. Michael Windom won't run for re-election.

He says after four terms on the school board, he's ready to pass the torch to someone else.

Windom says he's seen a lot of improvements in the school system in the last 16 years. 

"I'm proud of the way that we rebuilt after the floods of '94, I've been pleased with the centers of excellence that we've established in each school as well as bringing the international baccalaureate program I've been proud of our students academic achievements as a result of no child left behind."

Windom said he's leaving the board to pursue some other ventures he's been interested in.

Windom holds the District 6 seat.
