Enterprise Superintendent Accepts Saraland Position

Enterprise Superintendent Accepts Saraland Position

Posted: Updated:
ENTERPRISE, Ala. -

Employees of Enterprise City Schools must say goodbye to superintendent Aaron Milner.

Employees were notified this week that the superintendent  resigned after accepting a position as superintendent of Saraland.

Tuesday, the Saraland school board unanimously selected Milner to replace Wayne Vickers, who accepted the position in Alabaster. Milner was one of 11 applicants for the position.

Following the meeting, Milner wrote a personal letter of resignation to ECS that expresses the pride he feels in the school system he'll be leaving behind.

"The area I am most proud of is the advancement our system has made in the academic achievement of our students," he said. "During my first semester as superintendent it was revealed that four of our 11 schools had not made Adequate Yearly Progress. While being a critic of NCLB, I was determined our schools system would meet this challenge in the coming year. Not only did our system make AYP, each of our 11 schools attainted this goal."

He says although it feels strange to call another place "home," he says it's necessary.  In his letter, Milner applauds ECS employees and urges them to ask themselves everyday how they can impact every student they come in contact with.

Milner served as superintendent of Enterprise for 2 and a half years.
