Longtime Edison High School Principal Greg Croghan met with faculty on Friday, announcing his plans to retire after nine years at the high school and 20 years in Fairfax County.
Croghan will finish out the school year, which ends next month. He retires officially Aug. 1.
“I felt from my first days at Edison that it would be a great place for me and it has been,” Croghan said in a letter to Edison families and staff. “Edison has an outstanding staff, now an outstanding facility, and a great group of students.
“I have had a wonderful time working with your children and with you to provide them with the best possible education. Their energy, creativity, and sense of responsibility have made Edison an exciting place. I have felt community support in many ways through the years. I always wanted the goals of the school to be that same as your goals for your children. You send us dynamite students and you support us with your hands and your heart.”
Croghan’s replacement as principal has not been named.
