|King resigning at Huntington|
Ray King is resigning as principal at Huntington School after serving in the post since April of 2005.
"I've been here for 38 months and I'm just kind of worn out," said King, who will be 63 in September. "It doesn't have anything to do with any other individual. This has been a really good experience and I have made so many good friends. Everything has been positive. I really hate to leave, but I am just at the point in my life where the job takes too much time and too much work for my age. School principalship is a difficult job and I just don't have the time or energy to do it the way it should be done in doing it right."
King said he will remain at Huntington until a new principal is hired.
"I actually did not anticipate being here as long as I was," he said. "But I got to know some folks I have known for years and become good friends with and will continue that way. We have some good leads. You hear some negative things about private schools and dire circumstances, but that's certainly not the case at Huntington. This is a good job and will be a good place for a young guy or gal to come in and take over."
King is looking forward to spending time with his six grandchildren with another one on the way. Oldest grandson Kent is 16 and will be competing for his dad, David, in football, basketball and track, as well as baseball.
"I don't want to miss a second of his athletic career," King said. "I've missed a lot of things and don't want to miss anything else."
But King will certainly miss the faculty, student sand support personnel at Huntington.
"I believe I left it in a little better shape than how it was when I came in," he said. "I hope I have contributed. I will always be a Hound fan."
