“The time has come for me to bid farewell to Lincoln County High School,” said Godbey in his retirement announcement. “I am reminded of the timeless wisdom encapsulated in the words, ‘To everything there is a season.’ After almost nine fulfilling years as principal of LCHS, it is with a full heart of gratitude and appreciation that I announce my retirement.”

Superintendent Bruce Smith said, “An interim principal can come in and help us navigate the remainder of the school year and give us time to properly search for our next head principal of the school.”
