Tyrrell County Schools Superintendent Oliver Holley announced Friday he will be stepping down after the current school year.

Holley informed the Tyrrell County Board of Education at their work session on Tuesday that his resignation will be effective June 30.

“My faith has always led me to understand that seasons of change are necessary to continue cultivating your gifts to better serve others,” Holley said in his letter of resignation to the school board.

Holley, who has led the Tyrrell County Schools since 2018, also sent a letter to staff members alerting them of his decision.

“In our partnership, we have worked long hours and served our community passionately, during what many characterize as the most challenging time in public education,” Holley said.

“This partnership has yielded favorable outcomes and accomplishments that should be acknowledged and celebrated,” Holley said. “This experience will carry me far into the future, and I am so proud to have served the community of Tyrrell County.”
