Forty-eight years of dedication to education will come to an end next summer when Gary Matthews, the Executive Director of the Alaska School Activities Association, steps down.
Matthews, who submitted a letter of resignation to the ASAA Board of Directors on Tuesday at the spring meeting in Cordova, said it was time to simply hang up the keys.
“I’m approaching the end of my career ...,” Matthews said via phone. “I’m 69 years old, and I’m looking towards retirement.”
Matthews stressed that he will not be involved with the search for his successor.
