Banks County High School Principal Art Wheaton announced on Thursday his plans to retire at the end of the 2011-12 school year.
Wheaton has been principal at BCHS for nine years.
Banks County Schools Superintendent Chris Erwin said, “Mr. Wheaton was one of the first employees I hired when I came to Banks County. I think I hired him about two months after I was hired as superintendent. He has been good for the school system and for Banks County High School.”
