Dublin City Schools said goodbye to a 25-year employee last week.

Dublin City Schools said goodbye to a 25-year employee last week.

Deputy Superintendent Michael Trego was honored by the Dublin Board of Education last week upon his retirement.

Trego came to Dublin City Schools 25 years ago from Worthington City Schools, said Superintendent Todd Hoadley.

During his time in Dublin, Trego was assistant principal at Sells Middle School, opened Grizzell Middle School as principal and served in several administrative positions in the central office.

"Mike was a leader among leaders for Dublin City Schools," Hoadley said.

Over the past eight years, Trego has served as deputy superintendent.

"The help he's been giving to me this year I cannot put into words," Hoadley said.

Trego is not fully retiring, however, and will serve as deputy superintendent at the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio, Hoadley said.

Trego, who has had two children graduate from Dublin City Schools, thanked the district for great opportunities.

"There were more opportunities than I can really think about that Dublin has offered me over the past 25 years," he said.

Trego complimented the administrative team and said he's made great friends working in the district.

"Thanks for all the things you've given me opportunity to do and all the blessings you've given my family," he said.

The district also honored retiring Director of Buildings and Grounds Jim Davis.

Since coming to Dublin City Schools in 1993, Davis has been involved with the building of seven Dublin schools.

"He'll be remembered for his service, dedication and loyalty," said Annette Morud, district director of business affairs.

Along with doing anything he could to help others in the district, Davis also worked with the community, Morud said.

Davis thanked his wife for her support during his 21 years at Dublin City Schools and the district for taking a chance on him.

"I had fun," he said. "I was doing something I love. I was working with incredible people. ... I'm really lucky that I have been given the opportunity to do this."

In other administrative news, board of education members last week accepted the resignation of District Executive Director of Learning and Teaching Eydie Schilling.

Schilling has taken a job as a curriculum consultant for the Fairfield County Educational Service Center.
