In a letter dated May 27, Geoff Hill resigned his position at Madison County High School, and at a special meeting that same evening, the Madison County School Board voted 4/1 to accept his resignation.
Hill, the band director at MCHS, was arrested May 14, 2014, and charged with sexual battery of a minor in custodial authority. A few days later, May 22, he was re-arrested on a second charge of sexual battery of a minor in custodial authority.
School board member VeEtta Hagan cast the lone dissenting vote, saying that she opposed the resignation because Hill should have been fired.
“I’m tired of our children being victimized and traumatized, and then he can just resign,” she declared. “He should have been fired.”
Hill, whose bail was set at $500,000, bonded out on May 23. The investigation of his case is currently ongoing.
