Henderson County Manager, Steve Wyatt, has announced his intention to step down from the position that he has held since March 2006.

“County Government never sleeps; it is a 365/24/7 operation. The men and women on the front lines, protect and serve with little fanfare. They deserve credit. They have my respect and gratitude. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your County Manager, to seek solutions to our challenges and to strengthen our position as we face tomorrow.

The fifteen years I have spent working with the Commissioners and staff of Henderson County have been the highlight of my thirty-eight year professional career. However, ‘for everything, there is a season’, and an appropriate time, and I believe this to be the time to close this chapter and begin, God willing, the next.

The County is in a strong position financially and is blessed with competent, capable leadership from the Board of Commissioners and throughout each county department. The foundation is solid and the best days for our County lie ahead. I am grateful to have been a part of laying this foundation.”

For perspective, during Wyatt’s tenure as County Manager, there have been four different Henderson County School Superintendents, four Henderson County Sheriffs, and three Presidents of Blue Ridge Community College. The Eleventh District has had four different Congressmen, there have been four North Carolina Governors, and four U.S. Presidents.

Wyatt will remain until the Board of Commissioners install his successor.
