Robert McIntosh, who has worked as an educator in several Southwest Georgia counties, is stepping down as principal of Dougherty Comprehensive High School.
McIntosh’s resignation will take effect June 24 and the Dougherty school board will hold a special called meeting on June 16 at 11:45 a.m. to discuss personnel matters – at which time Superintendent David Mosely will make a recommendation for a replacement.
McIntosh is the former superintendent of schools for Miller County and before that, was a middle school principal in Decatur County.
McIntosh issued this statement:
“It is with deep regret that I find it necessary to announce my resignation as Principal at Dougherty Comprehensive High School. Personal, professional and family circumstances dictate the need for this decision. I have poured my heart into improving the school over the past two years and all school stakeholders have supported the tremendous progress that has been made within the school in such a short period of time.
It is my hope that this progress will continue. The faculty, staff and students embraced the changes we implemented at Dougherty High, and together, through our collaborative efforts, we made great gains in school improvement. These collaborative efforts are what can propel the school forward.
There is now a new culture at Dougherty. They now “expect to win!” By working together, they can be successful. I wish them the best of luck! I want to personally thank Dr. Mosely, Jack Willis and the Dougherty County Board of Education for providing me the opportunity to work in the school system. It has been a rewarding experience!”
