DFS Director Comments on Girls School Director Resignation

The recent announcement that Clark Fairbanks has resigned as Director of the Wyoming Girls School in Sheridan to accept a similar position in Gillette has brought nothing but praise from his colleagues. Wyoming DFS Director Tony Lewis.

Lewis says that the process of finding a new director is already in the works.

Lewis said that he will be in Sheridan next Wednesday, and that it's possible that the interim director will be announced during his visit to the Girls School next week.

Fairbanks resignation is effective December 31, 2010.

Couldn't agree more

I echo thanks to Sheridan Media for being a respectable news source rather than a salacious tabloid. Our community deserves better.Clark is one of the finest men I have ever known. He is a man of quiet integrity and deep convictions. Gillette is fortunate to have him back. He will be missed greatly.


I sure is interesting how many of the directors of different agencies are packin up and leaving town. Mr Fairbanks was one of the few truely decent people i had the pleasure of meeting in sheridan. I wish him well!


Have known Clark since before he came to Sheridan. We are losing a good man. Despite what the local rag of a newspaper would like to make us think. Good luck Clark.

Thank you Sheridan Media

Thank you so much Sheridan Media for doing a much more tasteful article than the press. You didn't attempt to insinuate any smut or wrong doing. You didn't bother to talk to a disgruntled ex-employee, of whom many know had serious emotional struggles. A person left a position, and he will be missed by some and probably not others. That is what doing business is like. I am grateful for the integrity and professionalism that this site offers. I no longer have to buy a newspaper and pay attention to the businesses that advertise here as well. Thanks for helping Sheridan be more informed about actual issues!

Well, Sheridan Media has to

Well, Sheridan Media has to be careful because they have a Girls' School employee that also works for them.


Not true. Sheridan Press needs to be careful because they are irresponsible and unprofessional. Check your facts... Oh wait...maybe with that kind of posting, you should apply for a job at the Press. Checking facts is clearly not a criterion for working there. You'd fit right in.

You have picked a great user

You have picked a great user name, because you obviously have an active imagination.
