After nearly 30 years in public education, Trotwood-Madison City Schools Superintendent Kevin Bell has announced his retirement, effective Dec. 31, 2018.

Board of Education President Adrienne Heard said the top priority is to conduct an extensive search for the next top leader in the district. Bell will continue his role until a replacement is found, according to a release sent this afternoon from the district.

“Mr. Bell leaves quite a legacy. He has devoted his time, wisdom and soul to this district,” Heard said. 

Bell -- a Trotwood-Madison graduate -- started his tenure at the district as a custodian. He later served as a teacher, principal, curriculum director and assistant superintendent. He became superintendent in 2011.
