Dear Administrative Family,

A little after 10 this morning, I signed a contract to become Superintendent of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School District effective July 1. It is a bittersweet decision for me as I love this community and have thoroughly enjoyed our work here.

You are such hardworking and devoted leaders and you demonstrate every day what it takes to help children succeed. It has been my sincere honor to work with each and everyone of you. I will work just as hard to ensure a smooth transition as I have worked with you for seven years. You have been like my family and I will miss the culture and community we have built in this district for our students.

Thank you for understanding this decision and how difficult it was for me. An important aspect of leadership is being intuitive about your own effectiveness… I think new leadership will be a good thing for this school system and I pledge to do whatever I can to ensure that happens in PCS.

Please know you are loved, appreciated and respected. Bev

From the James Taylor song, "Another Day"
Another night has gone, life goes on, another dawn is breaking.
Turn and face the sun, one by one, the world outside is waking.
Morning light has driven away all the shadows that hide your way.
And night has given away to the promise of another day.
