CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Dr. B.J. Worthington, the Director of Schools for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, announced his retirement on Wednesday.

His retirement will go into effect at the end of this school year next June.

Dr. Worthington has served as Director of Schools since August 2012. He has been with CMCSS for 31 years as a science teacher, school administrator and chief academic officer.

“There is never a perfect time to walk away, but I feel it is the right decision for me at this time. This school system and community have been very kind to me and my family throughout my entire career and we certainly feel blessed. This district has so much of which to be proud and is poised for even greater future accomplishments. This is a district in which the community should take great pride,” Worthington said.

The Clarksville-Montgomery County School Board will discuss its plans to begin the process of filling the position at its next scheduled meeting.
