      Superintendent resigns to be closer to family

      Gwinn Area Community Schools will say farewell to their superintendent, Kimberly Tufnell.

      Tufnell accepted the position as GACS Superintendent in 2004. She has been in education since 1997, holding a variety of positions.

      Tufnell released a statement regarding her reason for her resignation.

      She said: "I will say on the record that I have an opportunity to move closer to family and am looking forward to spending more time with my children and grandchildren. I have nothing but love and adoration for my staff, students and families, and thank them from the bottom of my heart for all they have given me during my time here. I will forever cherish my time in Gwinn."

      Gwinn area residents and co-workers of Tufnell say she will be greatly missed.
