In his last appearance as interim school superintendent, John Stewart had little to offer at the May 22 Polk County Public Schools Board of Education meeting. What he did have to say, though, was quite stirring.
Rather than speak on himself and his stint as the interim superintendent coming to an end, or comment upon the Board’s decision to Kathryn LeRoy the offer to become next school superintendent, Stewart spoke of an email he had recently received from a school teacher, Denise Price.
