WLOX Editorial: Well done Sue Matheson

Posted: Updated:

It's not easy to build a school system back school by school after Hurricane Katrina and at the same time become one of the best school districts in the state and even in the nation.

Under the leadership of Pass Christian School Superintendent Sue Matheson that is exactly what the Pass Christian School District has done.

Now Matheson says it time for her to move on and let someone else take over the reins of the " Star" designated school system. She plans to retire at the end of this school year.

Matheson who became superintendent ten years ago, has seen the Pass Christian School District ranked the number one school district in the state for the past three years.

Pass Christian is the only school district in the state with all four of its schools making "Star" status. The designation is based on test scores, graduation rates and dropout numbers.

Matheson says she wants to enjoy life away from the classroom for a while. She adds, "The school district has never been better.  I think I'm leaving it in great shape."

Sue Matheson has set the bar high in Pass Christian. She has shown you can overcome adversity and still have a high performing school district.

Well done Sue Matheson. Well done!
