Liberty High School assistant principal and athletic director Brad Fittro has announced his resignation. Fittro has accepted a job with the West Virginia Department of Education in Charleston and will be leaving next month.
Fittro will be working in the state's Office of Professional Preparation. His job will be to assist future teachers in obtaining their certifications and licensure. Fittro announced his final day at Liberty High School will be November 14th.
"It's a new challenge, but it's something I thought I would be good at," Fittro said in a story posted by Connect Clarksburg.
Fittro has spent three years at Liberty High School. He said leaving is never easy, especially when establishing so many friendships along the way.
"It has been a tough decision," he said.
Before his job at Liberty, he served as an assistant principal at Anna Jarvis Elementary School in Taylor County and as an assistant principal at Robert L. Bland Middle School in Lewis County. Some of his previous stops in the education department involve being a teacher at Bridgeport High School, as well as an educator in Cabell County in Kentucky.
Liberty High School officials said there is not an interim athletic director currently in place. The school plans to post the job opening with the Harrison County Board of Education in the coming days.
