TWO RIVERS, Wis. (AP) -- A Two Rivers top school official is forgoing $170,000 worth of salary and benefits this school year.
HTR Media in Manitowoc reports Randy Fredrikson is volunteering his services as district administrator as a thank-you to the district that employed him the last 26 years.
That means no salary, no health or dental insurance, no retirement contributions.
The 58-year-old grandfather says he appreciates the school board that gave him a shot at the top job in 1995, allowed his wife to teach in the district and stuck with him through trying times like a referendum for a new high school in 2000.
He's technically retired so he's also drawing a pension from the Wisconsin Retirement System, which he would do regardless of whether he volunteered to stay with Two Rivers.
