ODESSA - Longtime teacher and current PreK-12 principal Jamie Nelson will retire at the end of the school year. Her resignation/retirement notice was accepted by the school board at a special meeting Monday, May 8 and will become effective Friday, June 30.
Nelson will depart Odessa after nine years as principal. She's spent 30 years in education overall.
