Medlar View Elementary School Susan Woods has been with the school since 2002 when she arrived as assistant principal and returned in 2007 to serve as the school’s principal, according to a spokesperson.

“We are so grateful for Mrs. Woods,” said Superintendent Dr. Laura Blessing. “Susan is a dedicated leader and mentor for her students and staff. Her presence at Medlar View will surely be missed.”

Woods came to the Miamisburg City School District from the Clark County School District in Las Vegas and then the Beavercreek City School District.

“The Miamisburg City School District, the community, staff and families, will always hold a special place in my heart,” said Woods. “Time within the district will be cherished forever.”

Her retirement will take effect at the end of the 2022-23 school year and a search for a new principal starts next week.
