Pulaski County High School Principal Mike Myers has asked the Pulaski County School Board to release him from his contract, the School Board announced early this week.
According to Superintendent Tom Brewster, Myers is looking to so he can accept a different job. He also added that his resignation is pending the Board’s approval.
“Mr. Myers has requested that the Board release him from his contract with notice to take another position,” said Brewster. “The Board has been notified of his request, but they have not made a final decision on the contract.”
Myers, who is married with three children, has been PCHS’ principal since 2011, after holding various teaching and administrative positions across Virginia. He has worked with Franklin County Schools, as well as Woodbridge, Floyd, Northumberland, and Middlesex.
Myers has also held positions as the head football coach for Bassett High School in Henry County, a superintendent, as well as a state job with the Virginia Department of Education.
Before he was hired as PCHS’ principal, Myers was a principal in Appomattox County.
The Principal earned his Bachelor’s Degree in 1989, and his Master’s in 1993 – both from Radford University.
Myers was unavailable for comment regarding his request and new position.
