Duplin County Schools Superintendent Dr. Wiley J. Doby resigned from his job this week amid a flurry of protests from parents and concerned citizens.

"I'm relieved that it's over, and I hope we can get things moving in a more positive manner," Violet Goodson, member of the North Duplin Junior/Senior High School Association said about the resignation. "We can get past all this distrust and fighting."

Doby read a statement of resignation late Tuesday night at the end of a four-hour Duplin County Board of Education meeting. The board voted to accept his resignation and voted to start actively searching for a new superintendent at the end of his contract term which ends this year.
