FRONT ROYAL – The Warren County School Board met for a special closed meeting Wednesday to discuss the evaluation of Superintendent Greg Drescher.

The meeting was held the day after Drescher turned himself in to state police on Tuesday after being indicted on two misdemeanor counts of misfeasance and one count of nonfeasance Friday by a special grand jury investigating potential criminal activity involving the Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority.  Drescher, who previously served as the EDA board chairman, was among 14 people indicted on the same charges who went before the magistrate this week.

Wednesday's two-hour meeting was attended by School Board Chairwoman Catherine Bower and board members Arnold Williams, Donna McEathron, Douglas Rosen, and James Wells. Assistant Superintendent of Warren County Public Schools Melody Sheppard and Director of Personnel for Warren County Public Schools George Smith were also a part of the meeting.

Board members made no comment regarding anything discussed in the meeting.

Drescher, who earlier this month announced his plan to retire as superintendent in January, was not present during the School Board meeting Wednesday.
