LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- On Monday, teachers, students and school board members sent off the outgoing Lawrence County Schools superintendent in style.

Superintendent Mike Armstrong, who spent nearly five years in the post, will be taking a new job as the executive director of the Kentucky School Boards Association.

The district presented Armstrong with a plaque and a watch to commemorate his time working in eastern Kentucky.

Armstrong said this last week at work is difficult for him.

"When I left the house this morning, I told my wife that it was a very strange feeling in my heart that this was the last week I was going to work and do this work," he said. "But to see people come and, in effect, say, 'Thank you for what you've done,' in a leadership role, it's reinforcing, it's rewarding."

His last day on the job is Friday.

Armstrong's replacement hasn't been found yet.
