The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners today honored retiring Gretna Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Kevin Riley.

​To thank him for his dedication and commitment to education, the Board issued a proclamation declaring June 30, 2019 – his last day as superintendent – to be Dr. Kevin Riley Day.

Dr. Riley joined Gretna Public Schools more than 37 years ago. He served as an assistant principal and principal before becoming superintendent in 1999.

Dr. Riley lead the district through a period of exponential growth, which saw the student population grow by more than 4,000 students.

He also was instrumental in forming the Sarpy County Education Program, which is Sarpy County's alternative school, a program Sheriff Jeff Davis credits with saving countless youths in our community.
