UNION- A retirement reception to honor Union’s Director of Special Projects of the Union School District, Lee Snodgrass was held this week and he looks back at his career in education. 

 It was January of 1975 when Lee Snodgrass started his career in public education. That’s 46 years of a life devoted to kids.

“First, 20 years as a teacher and principal at Tulsa Public Schools, and then the last 26 years at Union.”

While at Union Public Schools, Snodgrass has had a number of different jobs. In 1994, he started with the school district as the Information Technology Director, a new position just created.

Snodgrass is ending his career in education on October 1 and the folks at Union say he’ll be greatly missed.

“I’ve loved my time in the classroom, and I’ve loved my time as an administrator because it’s given me the opportunity to do things I never dreamed I was going to be able to do.”
