BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Morgan County's Superintendent of Schools will retire in June and he is looking forward to it.

David Temple has served Morgan County for more than four years and has been in the school system for 25 years as a school teacher, principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent.

He grew up in Preston County, W.Va., where he has a 40-acre farm. He said he will concentrate on getting it back in shape while assuming the role of gentleman farmer.

"Beef farming and maybe some horses, chicken and pigs," he said.

His parents live in Preston County, and he wants to tend to his family. It is a two-hour drive from Berkeley Springs to their home.

"This was a great opportunity to work in Morgan County. We have been on a very proactive and positive track, and the kids are always at the center," he said.

He may find some time to do consulting work with the West Virginia school system. "I'm always ready for the next challenge," Temple said.

His wife, Colleen Temple, is a teacher at Widmyer Elementary School in Morgan County.
