Mrs. Sikes

At the board meeting on Monday, February 3, 2014, Mrs. Sikes read her letter of resignation effective May 30, 2014, in order for her to pursue another opportunity.  There will be no change in the normal school routine as the board enters into a selection process for her replacement.  Mrs. Sikes has been a part of the Pike Liberal Arts Family for 8 years and we appreciate her hard work and dedication to our school.  Pike Liberal Arts is a better place for her efforts and we wish her good luck in the future.
