Liberty Middle School Principal Vic Lee will retire June 30 after 37 years in public education.
"Mr. Lee, a well-respected and successful Principal, will be sorely missed by many and we wish him and his family all the best now and in the future," said Superintendent Gary Mathews in a Monday email.

Liberty also had more than 20 percent of its students exceed standards on the CRCTs this year,
Mathews said the Liberyt Middle School principal position will be posted sometime Monday.
