Philip Rhodes’ tenure at Thomas Heyward Academy has ended. He’s leaving at the close of the school year after 28 years as a coach, educator and athletics director.
Rhodes said he’s still energetic and loves working with the kids and knows he’ll miss football Fridays, but the 66-year-old Ridgeland resident said it’s time to step away.
“It’s probably time to leave,” said Rhodes, who noted he’s leaving the school, but will seek other employment. “All good things come to an end and we’ll see where other things lead me.”
