After 10 years navigating the ins and outs of Highland Park ISD’s finances, assistant superintendent Ben Coker announced his retirement Thursday afternoon.
Coker’s tenure at HPISD was the culmination of a 42-year career in education.
“Over the years, we have looked under every rock for every penny to make a difference for our students,” Coker said in a statement. “My colleagues here in Highland Park have been great to work with, and I will miss seeing them every day.”
The announcement came after this week’s Park Cities People was sent to press; for a more in-depth look at Coker’s contributions to the district, check out next week’s edition.
