Paul Rusko, county coordinator of physical education and athletics, followed the path of his assistant, Jean Boyd, when he announced his retirement Tuesday.
Rusko, who has served in the county for the past 32 years as a physical education teacher, coach, athletic director, assistant principal and at his current position, officially will step down on June 30.
"I've been in the business for 34 years -- that's over half of mylifetime," said Rusko, 57.
"I always told myself that I would know when it's the right time and I've been toying with it for some time. Now's a good time. I made the decision Monday."
