|King returns to Huntington|
Retirement just does not seem to fit Ray King.
King, the former administrator at Louisiana Technical College Shelby M. Jackson Campus, came out of retirement in 2005 to serve as headmaster at Huntington School.
King expected to spend a year or two at the Ferriday school, but stayed until 2008 when he decided to step aside.
With Huntington seeking a headmaster after Tony Palermo recently resigned, King has answered the call again.
"I miss work," King said. "I'm the kind of guy who will probably work until he dies. I acted a little hastily when I decided to retire, but now I am ready to come back. I helped them find Tony and I think he did an exceptional job. He and Emily Guida worked hard throughout the summer. We have a strong faculty in place and have certified people at every position."
King attended Northwestern State and received his Master from Louisiana-Monroe, teaching in Catahoula and Concordia Parish schools before serving 19 years at the technical college.
"I love this job," King said. "Like any principal's job it can be stressful, but I'm rested and ready to go. Huntington means a lot of Ferriday. It's been here 40 years and will be here 40 more and even more. People are always looking for an alternative to public education, that's just a fact of life. The people in this community are proud of this school. I live in the community, go to church with these people, go grocery shopping with them and know all the kids. This is an enjoyable experience for me."
Huntington begins its new school year on Aug. 10.
