Lyon County School District Superintendent Nat Lommori will retire when his contract expires at the end of the school year.

The Mason Valley native is in his 15th year at the helm of the district and has overseen a period of rapid growth in the county and the schools.

“It’s been a long time,” he said. “Now I’ll go play with the grandkids.”

He said he had no particular plans for his retirement.

“It’s a big world out there,” he said. “We’ll see.”

Lommori, who lives in Smith Valley, graduated from Yerington High School and then the University of Nevada, Reno.

His first teaching job was in 1974 at Douglas High School, and in 1980 he was selected Teacher of the Year for Vocational Education. He has served as principal at Smith Valley and was in charge of personnel and transportation for Lyon County schools before becoming associate superintendent, and then superintendent.

In addition to the teaching award, Lommori was chosen Superintendent of the Year in 2000 by the Nevada Superintendents Association and in 2006 by the Nevada School Boards Association.
