Mr. Rutherford announced his retirement at the Penta school board’s December 12 meeting.

The former U.S. Marine, who has been involved in public education for nearly 60 years, chose to retire citing health issues.

“Thank you all for putting up with me all these years,” he said.

“This is Joe’s 16th year [at Penta],” Superintendent Ron Matter noted.
