April Tauscher, above, hired this past summer to replace the retiring Cheryl Creek as head of the Franklin County High School’s culinary arts program, has resigned. Principal George Oehlert confirmed that Tauscher and her two children had left her post last week and moved back to North Carolina, mainly for personal, family reasons. Tauscher and eight of her students took part in the Apalachicola Municipal Library’s Civil War dinner Friday  at Benedict Hall. “ I loved the people in Franklin County and enjoyed my sort time there,” she said.

Oehlert said the school is using a substitute teacher until it is able to find a suitable individual to lead the program. “I am presently reviewing the resumes we have and contacting individuals to see if they still have an interest,” he said.
