Joe Keenan was so excited when he became principal of Lancaster High School in July 1996, he forgot to pick up his wife, Debbie, from the hospital after surgery.
His new job was just that enthralling.
Now, 21 years later, Dr. Keenan has decided to retire.
“People tell you ‘you know when it’s time to go,’ and it’s time,” he said.
Keenan, 56, said some of his best memories are the school winning Palmetto Gold and Silver Awards for student achievement, and the Lady Bruins’ 2015 state basketball championship.
