Social media was buzzing about the news today. Superintendent Chris Fritsch says that it’s up to the principal if he wants to discuss his reasons behind the decision to leave, in light of a number of Facebook comments looking for answers. However, the parting is cordial. Fritsch says he wishes Greenough the best in his future endeavors.
“Unfortunately sometimes rumors get started that way and there’s really not a lot we can do about that,” says Fritsch. “Out of respect to all of our staff, we just don’t engage in getting into details on personnel issues.” Fritsch went on to say, “He’s felt like he’s done a good job here in Pendleton and professionally was ready to start looking for new adventures.”
Greenough shared his letter of resignation with KUMA News, and it appears he is stepping down with a heavy heart. Greenough says he’s thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff and students at Pendleton High School and the alternative school and is proud of their accomplishments.
“The decision is one at which I have not easily arrived,” says Greenough. However, he says it “is the most logical process for moving forward for both myself and the buildings in which I serve.”
Greenough says he is in the process of looking for another administrative position to continue his passion for working with students.
