BRIGHTON — After six years at the helm, Bighton 27J Superintendent Rod L. Blunck is calling it a career as district officials and city leaders gathered last week to honor him.
Blunck was presented a going-away plaque by Brighton High School Principal John Biner May 15 during a community open house at Brighton Heritage Academy. His last day with the district is June 30.
“(He) has been a solid rock for optimism and caring for people in this school district,” Biner said of Blunck during the open house.
Blunck was one of 16 retirees this year at Brighton 27J, all of whom were recognized during the annual retirement dinner later that evening.
Blunck plans on becoming a full-time education leadership professor at University of Colorado-Denver after his retirement.
Prairie View Principal Chris Fiedler has been selected to replace Blunck as superintendent. Fiedler starts his new job July 1.
