Barbourville, KY. – Shirley Treadway has put the rumors of retirement to rest. The long-time Barbourville City School Board Chairman still has two years left of his four-year term. Treadway first became a board member in 1961 and was elected chairman in 1967, making him the longest running school board member in history.

During his 53 years on the board he has worked diligently to accomplish so much for Barbourville City Schools, such as fighting hard for grants to build a new gymnasium, which is now named after him.
