Sixteen years ago, Dr. Roy Woodward came to Harrison County on the heels of controversy and was touted to be the man who would move the schools forward.
Woodward took over as superintendent on July 1, 1992.
Dr. George Paul Hehr, who was a former assistant superintendent, was serving as interim superintendent in the wake of the Wade G. Roby PhD. era. Roby's reign as superintendent ended after months of debate and division of the community.
Hehr stayed at the helm until Woodward arrived.
In Woodwards early days, he, too, came under close community scrutiny.
