QUINCY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Carter Parramore Academy sent Superintendent Roger Milton into retirement with horns, lights, and sirens.

"I heard sirens going on," said Milton. "I look and see the parade of cars coming in, and it was only in that moment that I had any inclination of what was going on."

November 17 will mark his last day as superintendent.

Milton has been a public servant in Gadsden County for 16 years.

"You know, retirement really doesn't mean stop working for me, it means that I'm just changing into another venue," Milton said. "I'm not sure what that venue is, or what that holds, but I will not be removing myself from the workforce or the community."

Superintendent Milton has been in his current role for four years.

Milton says he's not a big golfer but will find something to occupy his time during retirement.
