Retirement parade held for Henderson superintendent

HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - A special send off for the former Henderson County Schools Superintendent.

Marganna Stanley is retiring after 30 years in education.

She served as superintendent for the last six years.

On Friday morning, a drive-thru parade was held at the Thelma B. Johnson Early Learning Center. Friends and students walked or drove by to give her words of thanks and appreciation.

Stanley says she’s excited about retirement, but will miss her co-workers and students.

“You grow very tight relationships, and we don’t always agree on everything, but our relationships are strong and we have quality teachers and staff, and I’m going to miss the people,” Stanley said.

She spent her entire career with Henderson schools, starting as a 5th-grade teacher back in 1990.

She was originally supposed to retire earlier in the school year but stuck around to make sure the transition was smooth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stanley says she and her husband now plan to open a bakery in Corydon.
