COLUMBIA CITY â€” One of Whitley County Consolidated School Corporationâ€™s tenants in the Marshall Community Building is moving out.
Superintendent Dr. Patricia Oâ€™Connor read a letter to the corporationâ€™s Board of School Trustees Monday night from Robert Huffman, Executive Director of Region 8 Education Service Center, which had its headquarters located in Columbia City for more than five years.
â€śIt is with a degree of sadness that I find myself writing this letter to you,â€ť wrote Huffman.
â€śWhenever there was a need, it was met, whenever there was a question, it was answered, whenever there was a need to share space, it was accommodatedâ€¦,â€ť wrote Huffman.
The organization is moving to a new location just north of Decatur at Monmouth Elementary School.
According to Huffman, Region 8 ESC serves 33 school corporations.
â€śThe space provided was exceptional for us to be able to provide services,â€ť wrote Huffman of the Marshall building.
Huffman said his organization has seen the conception and progress of WCCSâ€™s much anticipated Eagle Tech.
â€śIt is also with a sense of pride that we had a small part in helping with the coordination of efforts for the New Tech High Schools now happening in several of our school districts,â€ť wrote Huffman. â€śYou are to be commended for moving forward in the best interest of the students of Whitley County.â€ť
According to Region 8â€™s website, the move to Decatur will take place during the week between Christmas and New Yearâ€™s.
