STATEHOUSE (Feb. 11, 2020) — State Rep. Brad Barrett (R-Richmond) Monday at the Statehouse honored retiring Superintendent of Centerville-Abington Community Schools Philip Stevenson for nearly 50 years of service to the community.
“Philip is a pillar of Centerville schools, serving our community since 1972,” Barrett said. “With his leadership and dedication to education, he has made a lasting impact on the students, families and staff. His retirement is well deserved, and I join all of Centerville and Wayne County in congratulating him for his many accomplishments.”
Stevenson began his career as a social studies teacher for Centerville High School 47 years ago, later becoming principle of the school for 20 years and then superintendent for 15 years.
Barrett said Stevenson strives to bring quality education and support to the school district, which led to the Community in Schools Champion of Education Award. Stevenson was named Wayne County Chamber of Commerce Educator of the year in 2016, and East Central District VI Superintendent of the Year in 2014.
