Orr resigns as superintendent of county schools

Nelson County Schools Superintendent Anthony Orr resigned his position Thursday evening, effective July 31, but will remain part of the school system in some fashion.

At a special-called meeting of the Nelson County Board of Education, Orr handed representatives of the media a resignation letter.

“When I was hired just over seven years ago, I was given a mission by the members of the board of education to move the Nelson County Schools forward on behalf of our children and our community,” he wrote.
