Gibraltar Secondary Principal Gereon Methner is saying goodbye to Gibraltar Secondary School after six years on the job.
Methner accepted the position of principal with Freedom Middle School last month after also being a finalist for the Florence County School District Superintendent position. He resigned his current post during last month's Gibraltar School Board meeting. The move to Freedom will bring Methner and his wife closer to family as their young son grows up. He says it was a hard decision for him to leave Gibraltar, but he also believes his successor will inherit a school that is in great shape.
Methner says he will look back fondly on his time at Gibraltar, especially when it comes to the staff and the families he interacted with during his tenure. He will finish out the school year as Gibraltar’s principal while the district and its school board look for his replacement.
The decision also means that the Ephraim Business Council will likely have to begin its own search for a new tourism coordinator as Methner’s wife Lane also departs.
