When Adams Central Superintendent Mike Pettibone announced his retirement at the end of this school year in January, thoughts immediately turned to finding a replacement for the well-liked leader of AC. Members of the Board of Education announced Tuesday evening they feel they've done just that, naming Lori Richmond as the new superintendent.
