 Clay County Board of Education members, in their Monday regular meeting, presented Superintendent Mark Leek with a plaque commemorating his years of service to the school system as coach, teacher and superintendent and wished him well in his future endeavors. 

Leek’s last day with Clay County schools was Wednesday. He announced in January that he felt it was time to retire. 

No specific reason was given for his sudden announcement. Leek said later, “I have been contemplating it for some time. I’ll not use the word ‘retirement’ because I may resurface in public education. But I’m stepping out on faith. I felt it was time.”
