For perhaps the first time in 31 years, Wayne County Public Schools’ Superintendent David Lewis said he has “no plans” when he crosses the threshold into retirement this month.

“We’ve not made any grand plans,” he said at a reception held in his honor at the administrative offices on March 28, just days before his April 1 retirement. “We want to be able to spend more time with our family.”
