LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

Carrolyn Hamilton said she struggled with the decision but decided this is the right time to retire as Superintendent of the Long Beach School District.

Hamilton is stepping down in June after 28 years with the district.

She said her biggest accomplishment was rebuilding and repairing schools after Hurricane Katrina. The storm also brought other problems, like destroying the city's tax base and ruining efforts to build a new high school.

She is looking forward to more family time and traveling.

Trang Pham Bui sat down with Hamilton this morning to talk about the things she has accomplished and what she expects in retirement. Look for that story later today on WLOX News Now and WLOX.com.

    Full-time Waveland city workers, primarily police officers, who take-home vehicles outside of the city limits could see a change to the city's policy soon. City leaders said the current policy is antiquated and needs to be rewritten into something that would benefit both the officers and the taxpayers.
