School Union 93 Superintendent Hurvitt announces retirement

BLUE HILL — School Union 93 Superintendent Mark Hurvitt announced his upcoming retirement at the Union 93 Board of Directors meeting Dec. 16.

In a letter to School Union 93 Board Chairman Jerry Markley, Hurvitt said he intends to retire effective June 30, 2021. 

Hurvitt has been superintendent for the Union 93 towns of Surry, Blue Hill, Penobscot, Castine, Brooksville and Blue Hill for nearly 15 years.

“I will be 63 this summer and am ready for a new chapter,” Hurvitt wrote. “Also, I would like to spend more time with my family than I am able to do now, attending meetings most nights. I have been focused on getting Union 93 through this very challenging school year, and, hopefully, next year will be a more normal year for Union 93.”

“By letting you know now, and giving 6.5 months notice, you can get together a committee, decide on the process and have plenty of time to fill the position with an exceptional candidate,” Hurvitt said. “I will be as helpful as I can be with the transition.”
