Haywood Schools superintendent announces retirement
Dr. Bill Nolte announced his retirement earlier today in meetings with principals and Central Office staff. His retirement is effective Nov. 1, 2022. The Board of Education will immediately begin the process of hiring a new Superintendent.
Dr. Nolte has worked for 38 years. He came to the school system during the 1984-85 school year. He previously worked at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he served as the Sports Medicine Clinic Coordinator. He has served in many capacities in Haywood County Schools including Central Office Director, Assistant Principal at Pisgah High School, Principal of Bethel Elementary School, Principal of Waynesville Middle School, Associate Superintendent and Superintendent.
"My decision was reached after conversations with my wife and with a great deal of thought and consideration," said Nolte. "I love Haywood County Schools and it has been a great honor to serve as Superintendent. Now it is time for me to spend more time with my family.”
“On behalf of the Haywood County Schools Board of Education, we congratulate Dr. Nolte for his many years of service to our school system,” said Chairman Chuck Francis. “Dr. Nolte has served our administration, teachers, staff and students very well. We appreciate his leadership and the Board wishes him well in his retirement.”
“I could not have asked for a better Board especially in dealing with everything that has come our way in the last few years,” said Nolte. “I appreciate their support of my desire to announce my retirement face-to-face with principals and Central Office staff. I am so proud of the leadership and support of our Board, principals and system-level leadership. No school community has done more to provide opportunity and support for students and staff during very unusual and challenging times.”
