Lee, 26, started strong with a five-under-par 67 in the first round but faltered toward the end and finished three strokes behind the leader with $125,000 (U.S.) in prize money. Lee is currently ranked 28th on the Asian Tour's UBS Order of Merit but lost in a playoff last month for a spot in the British Open.

CITY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT RESIGNS

www.thomascountynews.com [cached]

Dr. Lee Shiver, a former Superintendent of the Thomasville City School System, was appointed the new director of the Georgia School for the Deaf in Rome.
Dr. Shiver resigned as Superintendent of Pickens County schools in North Georgia in the Fall of 2005. had been moved by then Superintendent Dr. Lee Shiver from the principal's position to a position as head of the systems alternative school program, a program that had not been fully established. The reason for moving Newton from the principal's job was, according to Dr. Shiver, as a result of "a series of disputes" with him. --The Superintendent of the Thomasville City Schools, Dr. Lee Shiver, resigned his position effective June 30, 1998 . He did it at a called meeting of the city school board Wednesday, June 10, 1998 . Dr. Shiver had been appointed as superintendent in the summer of 1994. After Dr. Shiver's resignation became effective, the board appointed Dr. Jim Cable, the then assistant superintendent, as the new superintendent. --The then Chairman of the School board, George Lilly, said Dr. Shiver had a contract with the school system through June 1999 and the system had intentions to honor that contract in full under a separation agreement. Sources indicated that agreement called for the system to pay around $100,000 to Dr. Shiver for the separation agreement. --In a written statement, Dr. Shiver said he was resigning as superintendent "because it has become obvious to me that my usefulness to the board has run its course. Shiver said there had been twelve different board members in less than four years and "this board has different priorities and ideas about how they want the school system to be run. Dr. Shiver said his immediate plans "are to spend some quality time with my family. I have a fairly diverse background in education administration, so I'm really interested in a number of opportunities that are out there right now, including higher education. I haven't committed to another position yet and I'm keeping my options open for the time being. Thomasville High School is one of the state's great high schools and my wife and I would very much like to see our oldest daughter, Brittany, graduate with her Bulldog classmates in 2000. Dr. Shiver presented a list of accomplishments of the city schools over the last four years and said "it is a characteristic of a quality school system that, despite different philosophies and opinions, puts the best interests of students first. It's been a hallmark of the Thomasville City School System for almost 100 years and I have every reason to believe it will continue well into the next millennium." --Public controversy broke out over Superintendent Shiver when a group of citizens and parents filed a federal lawsuit the last day of 1996 alleging discriminatory practices at the school system. The suit also asked that a middle school principal moved out of the school by Dr. Shiver be reinstated. Dr. Shiver and school officials repeatedly said they did not understand what the protest was about. The Georgia Human Relations Commission was called by the school system to come to Thomasville to assist in easing tensions in the community. The GHRC is a state agency that assists communities to resolve conflicts among its citizens. Several public forums were held by the GHRC to gather information and June 6, 1997, a preliminary report given to the school board saying that tensions among factions in the community generally came from a lack of communication between board members, between members of the board and the school administration, and among the board, administration and the public. On June 31 the school board voted to extend Dr. Shiver's contract as superintendent until the end of June 1999. On election day November 1997, three of the seven board members were replaced. One board member had resigned, two board members were defeated for reelection. DR. SHIVER RESIGNS AS SUPERINTENDENT OF THE PICKENS COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM TO TAKE A JOB AT THE GEORGIA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF --Dr. Lee Shiver, a former Superintendent of the Thomasville City School System, has been appointed the new director of the Georgia School for the Deaf in Rome. The appointment has been criticized by members of the deaf community who say Dr. Shiver comes despite a lack of experience working with the deaf and no knowledge of sign language. Dr. Shiver has resigned as Superintendent of Pickens County schools in North Georgia in the Fall of 2005. Dr. Shiver had been Superintendent of the Thomasville City School System from the summer of 1994 until he resigned in June, 1998. --Shiver's appointment was voted on by the state board on February 7, 2006, and is due to be effective March 1. He will replace an interim director at the School for the Deaf, Cynthia Ashby. The former director of the school, Winfield McChord, resigned in July, 2005, after serving for 19 months. A spokesperson for the State Department of Education, Dana Tofig, has cited Dr. Shiver's education background for his selection, "The superintendent and the board were very impressed with Dr. Shiver's commitment to education in Georgia, and believe he would do a wonderful job at the Georgia School for the Deaf." The newspaper also reported that Cox said she and her staff were "very confident" that Shiver has "the experience and the attitude to lead the Georgia School for the Deaf and make it one of the best deaf-education schools in America." --The Rome newspaper also reported that Dr. Shiver said he was learning American Sign Language and challenge shows his attitude, "I think once the students see that and understand that, and parents see that, they will feel very positive." --In their February 9, 2006, editions with the first news of his appointment, the Rome newspaper quoted Dr. Shiver as saying, "It's very exciting. The newspaper reported that Shiver said those experiences taught about barriers that students with labels can deal with, "My background personally and professionally really lends itself to the leadership that the state is looking for. As a superintendent and a principal he said he has worked with students with learning disabilities including hearing disabilities. He has a 21-year-old daughter with Down's Syndrome. --Earlier in the year, August 11, the Pickens County Board of Education met and discussed Shiver's work as superintendent and his future with the school system. The Pickens County Board of Education met Wednesday, September 21, 2005, for an emergency called board meeting. After a closed session to discuss personnel, the school board voted to accept a mutual release agreement with Dr. Shiver from his obligations as superintendent. --In a statement released after the September meeting, the board said, "The Board would like to thank Dr. Lee Shiver for the work and leadership he has provided to the Pickens County School system since 1999. His efforts can be seen both in our classrooms and campuses. The statement said, "This Board and Dr. Shiver have come to a mutual contract release agreement, because of philosophical differences in our school system."
