Norfolk school board praises retiring superintendent

NORFOLK - Making the tough decisions - that was the action most praised as members of the Norfolk Public School Board and staff said goodbye to Superintendent Marlene Uhing.  Uhing is retiring July 1st after six years with the district.  During that time, the Norfolk schools have seen steadily decreasing state and federal support.  Uhing attended her final regular Norfolk School Board meeting Monday night.  School Board President Brad Krivohlavek wished her well in the future, commenting that being a superintendent is a very difficult job.  Dr. Jami Jo Thompson was selected to succeed Uhing, and work on the transition from one superintendent to the next is underway.
