Retirement After Internal Investigation

Statement, 12.12.18

Bob Blankenship, director of STEAM for MNPS, has chosen to retire as of December 15, 2017 after 20 plus years serving our district. MNPS thanks Mr. Blankenship for his long and dedicated career as a teacher, multiple award winning principal and finally STEAM director. He planned to retire when MNPS tapped him to fill the unexpected need for a STEAM director at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. His willingness to jump in to support and lead our STEAM project will not be forgotten. MNPS is better because of Mr. Blankenship’s leadership. We wish him every bit of happiness as he embarks on his next adventure.


Warm regards,
