Outgoing Chilton County Schools Superintendent Jason Griffin will officially retire from education at the end of the year.

Griffin reflected on his last four and a half years as superintendent during his final Board of Education meeting on Dec. 13.

“Thank you to the citizens of Chilton County for the opportunity to serve as superintendent of Chilton County Schools,” Griffin said. “It has been an honor to serve in this capacity, and I have truly enjoyed working with all of you. You all have become friends … I pray to God that he will continue to bless this school system, and I know he will.”

Board member Keith Moore thanked Griffin for all he has done for the school system.

“I know it is a tough job,” Moore said. “It’s a tough job. It is a thankless job sometimes.”

Board president Pam Price also thanked Griffin for his service.

Corey Clements will be starting as the next CCS Superintendent in January, having won the election in November. Clements will be sworn in to the position on Dec. 16.
