Dr. Terry McAteer Honored Once Again
The office of Inyo County Superintendent of schools has honored its recently departed superintendent. Dr. Terry McAteers legacy will live on in Inyo County far into the future. After 8 years as Inyo County’s Superintendent of Schools, Dr. McAteer left a large footprint of local school development and successful implementation that will never be forgotten. Since his retirement as County Superintendent on July 2nd, the accolades have continued to roll in. The latest honor bestowed upon Dr. McAteer is located at the Jill Kinmont Boothe School where yesterday afternoon the local Board of Education sent Dr. McAteer off in style by renaming the schools Great Room as the Doctor Terry McAteer Room. The room is host to the new Keith Bright School, an educational facility for adjudicated juvenile detainees that was recently moved from Independence to save tax dollars, a move that was partially catalyzed by Dr. McAteers influence. The new dedication of the room to bear McAteers name was symbolized with a plaque presented to Dr.McAteer by Board President Chris Langley. Dr. McAteer sets off next week for some well earned rest and relaxation as he and his wife take a European trip to Turkey, Greece, and the Baltic’s.
