BUCKHANNON — The retiring superintendent of Upshur County Schools has closed the book on his 35-year career in Upshur County Schools — a place he originally intended to stay just one year.

Scott Lampinen said he decided early in his life growing up in New Jersey that he wanted to be a teacher.

“My fifth grade teacher — Betty Stillwell — was the one that inspired me to become a teacher,” he said. “I was actually a struggling reader as a youngster. She worked with me individually and as a group and really made me believe how much she cared about kids and seeing them progress.

“She was doing things back then that we look at today as almost innovative — small group instruction and project-based learning. She called it units of study. She pulled the group and integrated all curriculum together.”
