Bill Meador

Q: High School level?

A: Junior high school. We were very pleased to be able to return to Moab. Both of our folks were getting older and this is where we wanted to live. So we came back and have been here ever since.

Q: So you both had been out in the world and you both agreed to come back? Moab is where you wanted to be eventually? How about the kids?

A: Oh, yes, they had cousins, and grandparents, and yes, it was great for the kids. And we did enjoy it too, because we did have a lot of family support. It’s great when you need a babysitter and Grandma is available.

Q: So your kids spent the rest of their growing up here and you went on from being a teacher to…?

A: Yes, I was the superintendent for sixteen years.

Q: How long did you teach before you became superintendent?

A: Four years. I went in first as assistant to the superintendent and then to assistant superintendent and then to the superintendent. I actually went into the superintendency in the district office in January of 1966. I spent a lot of years in the central office. I was never a principal. I skipped that step.
