Shorewood Athletic Director Retiring at End of School Year
After 25 years in Shorewood schools, Bill Haury is retiring. The School Board will consider his retirement request Tuesday night.
When school lets out for summer break, Bill Haury will say goodbye for good after 25 years in the Shorewood School District.
Haury has served in different roles in the district over the more than two decades, most recently as dean of students and district athletic director.
"... I would be interested in continuing to serve as 7-12 Director of Athletics, but after 8.5 years of fulfilling what were formally two full-time positions, I no longer have the motivation and energy to continue doing what is required in meeting the demands of these combined administrative positions," Haury said in a letter to the School Board.
The board will consider his retirement request during a regular meeting slated for Tuesday night. Haury's time of service makes him eligible to receive district retirement benefits.
"I want to thank the district for the opportunity to work with the students and community during my time of service, and for what I have learned and experienced during that time," Haury added.
Shorewood High School offers 23 sports over three seasons, according to the district website. About 57 percent of students participate in at least one sport while 24 percent participate in at least two and 5 percent participate in three.
The sharing of administrative roles in the district is nothing new. Officials only recently hired to fill the role of director of curriculum, which was shared by principals for years.
Retirements from Shorewood schools have waned from previous years. Just one teacher is retiring, while a handful of other educators and long-time employees are leaving the district.
