After six years as principal of Baldwin High School, Dr. Walter Graves will be retiring in June.

Prior to working in Baldwin, Graves worked at Southwestern High School in York County for 10 years. He plans to return to his home in Hanover, Pa., with his wife to look for a job in carpentry.

“I am 56 years old and in fairly good health. I still enjoy working with my hands and tools, and I would like to continue until my body won’t let me anymore,” Graves said.

Graves, who announced his retirement plans on Wednesday, recalled his time spent at Baldwin fondly.

“I’ve said this all along: The students are the nicest kids I’ve had throughout my career,” Graves said. “The staff is fantastic. It’s been a really nice way to end my educational career with such great people.”
