The nation’s longest-serving school board chairman and his superintendent retired this week.


Barbourville Independent Schools bade farewell to Superintendent Larry Warren and Board of Education Chairman Shirley “Buck” Treadway Monday, May 23. A reception was held in the old gymnasium in honor of Warren and Treadway’s retirement.

Family and colleagues of the retirees spoke of the two men’s accomplishments and character.

“My grandparents lived right across the street and as a kid I would play all around the grounds here,” said Treadway. “I’ve been very dedicated to this school system. I’ve enjoyed the years that we’ve had success and I hope it will continue for years to come.”
