A Message from Superintendent Sublette Regarding Retirement Dear CGESD Community It is with deep gratitude for the consistent support and leadership from our Board, employees, districts, and community that I am announcing my retirement at the end of June 2024. After more than 45 years in education, it seems that this is a good time to embrace the next chapter in my career and life. As you can imagine, this is not an easy decision or one that I have come to lightly. However, I am leaving CGESD is in a solid spot. After several years of rapid growth, and the COVID Pandemic, we have been able to establish strong internal processes to support our employees. We have multiplied and deepened services for our districts and in the communities we serve. We have been able to hire outstanding people who are passionate about their work. In short, CGESD is in a solid position to transition to new leadership. I believe our services to districts and the region will only continue to improve and grow over the next several years. Please know that leading Columbia Gorge ESD has been a career highlight. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with so many amazing people over the last 7 years. I will always be grateful for the experience. Sincerely Pat Sublette, Ph.D.
