Thomasville-- Ricky Ivey has served on the board for nearly ten years. Last April, at his job with Archbold Medical Center, he was named vice president of public affairs.
Since that time, he says added responsibilities, including lots of travel have made him miss several school board meetings. "I just don't feel like I'm able to serve in a way that I would want to serve, you know to be actively involved and to participate in the planning process and the decision making process, its just that I'm not able to be the member of the board that I would like to be," said Ivey.
He adds it was not an easy decision to leave the board, but he feels it's the right thing to do. He's confident the board will continue to be successful after he's gone.
