ROCKPORT, Maine — A new superintendent has been selected for the Camden area. The current assistant superintendent, Elaine Nutter, will step into the role in July, school board chairs announced Wednesday.
“We are very excited to have Elaine lead our two districts, maintaining the positive momentum from this past year on several fronts,” Tori Manzi and Bob Lawson wrote in a statement Wednesday. Manzi and Lawson chair the two school boards in the district.
Nutter will replace William Shuttleworth, who recently resigned in April.
Shuttleworth served one year with the Five-Town Community School District and School Administrative District 28, but said he is 65 years old, has been in education for 42 years and has not missed a day of work in 21 years. He said there were a lot of things he wanted to do and thought that this was the time to retire.
“I’m 65 and I’m working 15 hours a day,” Shuttleworth said when he told the school board about his resignation. “In 10 years, I’m not sure I will be able to hike the Grand Canyon.”
