Gary Feenstra announced December 17 that he will retire this summer as superintendent of Zeeland Public Schools, capping 18 years of service to the district and an education career totalling 39 years.

"I can say with all honesty that this job has been the most wonderful work experience of my life," Feenstra said. The 60-year-old superintendent cited a desire to spend more time with his family. 

Carol Slagh, Board of Education president, said the Board accepts his request for retirement "with deep regret. Gary met all of our goals and performed his duties behond our expectations."

On Monday, December 20, the Board of Education met following the Breakfast with Pete event at Evergreen Commons to begin the search process.
