After serving nearly six years on the Montgomery County Board of Education, school board member Durden Dean resigned from his position on Monday. He was first elected to the District 2 seat in 2012.

Dean, a former mayor of Union Springs, Ala., notified Superintendent Ann Roy Moore and along with board members via email Monday morning explaining he was planning to move to North Carolina with his wife.

Dr. Moore & MPS Board:

It is with mixed emotions that I am notifying you and my fellow board members of my resignation immediately from the MPS Board. I have already notified board President Robert Porterfield.

My wife and I have been planning for some time to move to North Caroline to be near our daughter and grandchildren and that has come about sooner than originally anticipated.

It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve the children of Montgomery and I know I am leaving the MPS family in VERY capable hands under your leadership! I mean that very sincerely!

Thank you so much for your dedication and wishing you and the board much success for our children going forward!

With kindest regards,

The school board will pick Dean’s successor, but must first wait 48 hours following his resignation.
