Dr. Thomas Reeder, the Wyoming Public Schools superintendent, announced that he will be retiring at the end of the school year.

Reeder has been with the Wyoming district for 27 years. He started his career as a math specialist and coach in 1991. He became the superintendent seven years ago.

The Board of Education accepted Reeder's retirement at their meeting on Monday night, March 12.

The school board president said that the search for Reeder's replacement will start immediately, and they are hoping to have the position filled by July 1.

Reeder graduated from high school in Wyoming and studied locally at Aquinas college. He and his wife, Maggie, are planning to stay close to the Wyoming community.
