Nearly a year since his last meeting, Henry County Public Schools Board of Education member John Smith Jr., has resigned.
Smith served Henry County’s first district on the HCPS Board of Education since 1977. When he suffered a stroke June 30, 2009, it came as a big blow to the community.
At that time, board chairman Donnie Tipton said the board voted to excuse Smith until such a time he or his family could make a decision.
Now, almost a year later, that decision has been made.
