Two familiar faces in the Corbin Independent School District’s Central Office will be retiring later this month, with both beginning new part-time positions with the district two days later.
Assistant Superintendent Darrell Tremaine and Director of Technology Sherry Trimble will retire from those positions on Oct. 31. On Nov. 2, both Trimble and Tremaine will assume their new duties.
Tremaine will become Technology Manager, and will head up technology department operations. Trimble will become Technology Analyist. Both are part-time classified positions.
Tremaine has been with the Corbin schools since 1972, and has served as a teacher, coach, principal and administrator in the central office. Under Tremaine’s tenure as principal, Corbin Middle School became recognized statewide as an exemplary middle school. He completed more than 11 years as an administrator in the Central Office. During that time, Tremaine provided leadership to improve school facilities at all buildings districtwide. Both the Corbin Primary School and Corbin High School building projects have received recognition as “design for learning” schools, both in Kentucky and across the nation.
Known as a leader in the district’s technology program, Trimble’s extensive experience included work with IBM and other technology consulting. A math teacher in the Fayette County and Corbin school districts early in her career, Trimble moved the school district forward, allowing Corbin to be recognized as a school district in Kentucky which focuses on using technology for learning purposes.
The announcements were made by Superintendent Ed McNeel.
