Friday, March 6, 1953
Superintendent M. B. Richards, head of the Malakoff Independent School System during the past seven years, tendered his resignation to the board of trustees Monday afternoon.
The written letter of resignation was accepted in a called meeting of the board members on Tuesday.
Mr. Richards came to Malakoff in the summer of 1946 from Grapeland, Texas, where he had been serving as high school principal.
With the effective date of his resignation, Mr. Richards will have completed a quarter century in public school service. Thirteen of these years were spent in class rooms in his home county of Van Zandt.
In his letter of resignation, Mr. Richards told the board, “I have enjoyed the seven years as your school superintendent and I am leaving with a sincere desire to see the school continue to grow. If I may be of assistance,” he said, “ in helping secure the kind of man that is needed for the great responsibility that lies ahead, I am glad to offer my services.”
