     Supt. Alan Faulk will retire from the Columbus County Schools this fall.

     Faulk, the school system for seven years, has spent his entire career in education in Columbus County.

     “I feel like it’s my time,” said Faulk, 57. “I’ve got 34 years in. I feel like it’s time to pursue some other plans, but I don’t have any plans now, really. I just want to take some time and see what’s out there.”

     Faulk submitted his resignation, effective Oct. 1, to the Columbus County Board of Education during a meeting Thursday afternoon.

     “I gave a 90-day notice,” Faulk said.

     Faulk’s career in education began as a teacher at Hallsboro Junior and Senior High School in 1984. He also taught at East Columbus High School, was an assistant principal at South Columbus High School, and principal at Evergreen Elementary School before being named an Associate Superintendent in 2005.
