Eric Myers is again leaving Bowling Green Schools, and this time he says it's for good.
Myers will end his 12-year run on the school board at the end of this month. He chose not to run for reelection.
This is Myers' second time "retiring" from the school district.
In 2000, he stepped down as assistant superintendent.
He has spent 41 years working for and leading the district.
During his years here, he also has served as special needs and work experience teacher; wrestling, golf, football and girls track coach; as high school athletic director; and high school principal.
"It's had its moments," he said about being on the opposite side of running the district as a school board member.
"I felt I had some unusual background (to run) for school board," Myers said about the decision he made 12 years ago. "This seemed to be something I knew something about."

Employees learned they will receive pay raises again this year as Wood County’s finances continue to rebound.
A 2.5-percent raise, a .5-percent one-time lump sum and a salary step increase were part of the 2014 budget county commissioners approved Thursday.
The pay increases for about 800 employees result in a $534,901.06 increase to the year’s appropriations, an adjustment made possible by responsible budgeting, according to Joe Fawcett, assistant county administrator.
Appropriation totals have been “whittled down” for the last several years and are closer to those not seen since 2006, Fawcett said.
“Knowing that, the commissioners felt comfortable giving this type of pay raise.”
No raises were given in 2010 or 2011. Increases were 1 percent in 2012 and 1.5 percent in 2013, also bolstered by a one-time payment.
The 2014 budget is set at $37,111,725, lower than last year’s appropriations by $193,048.18.

MILLBURY - A little more work means a little more pay for a Lake School District principal.
Lee Herman's annual salary was boosted 0.35 percent at Wednesday's board of education meeting. Before the raise, he was earning $83,762, which reflects a 2-percent raise given in September, when most Lake administrators got salary hikes.
The eighth grade has moved into the high school building, giving Herman additional responsibilities, said board President Tim Krugh.
There are 150 eighth-graders using the six new classrooms at the high school.
Over the next two years, Herman will get raises of 1.95 percent annually, up from 1.25 percent in the September contract.
After the meeting, Krugh said the board discussed several topics at a workshop held earlier this month, including putting a levy renewal on the ballot next year.

A Wood County Sheriff’s deputy has been indicted with one count of sexual battery and two counts of gross sexual imposition.
According to the indictment, Dusty G. Garwood, 50, Bradner, is alleged to have engaged in sexual activity with a female inmate.

Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn said this morning that Garwood, who has been on staff since 1997, had resigned several months ago. Garwood regularly transported inmates to and from the Wood County Courthouse.
According to Paul Dobson, the Wood County prosecutor, who is personally taking the lead in this case, the two GSI counts are charged in the alternative, allowing the court or a jury to decide which statute is more appropriate. The sexual battery charge alleges actual intercourse with the same victim.
Dobson said the inmate was not physically in the jail at the time, but had been released and was on electronic home monitoring at the time as her criminal case was ongoing.
