Harrison County Superintendent Roy Gill’s last day of school

After more than three decades in education with the Harrison County School District, Superintendent Roy Gill is ready to say goodbye.

Today, while students are preparing to head home for summer break, Gill is preparing for the next chapter in his life: retirement!

A 1982 graduate of Harrison Central High School, Gill has dedicated the last 35 years of his life to educating students in Harrison County.

Gill says over the years he was offered other opportunities, but he chose to stay with the Harrison County School District for the entirety of his career because he believes in his staff, students, and community and the family they make up. “One of the things I would like to share that I hope we continue to do is push public education. I think that is the fundamental principle of a community, to help make sure the boys and girls of this area are provided with the opportunity to do whatever they want to do. I often say do not let someone’s address define the capabilities or possibilities of what they can become.”

As for what’s next? Gill says he plans to spend time with his wife and family and enjoy life.
