After 42 years in education, with 20 of those spent in the School City of Whiting, Dr. Sandy will be retiring on June 30th. Dr. Martinez has said that attending the many co-curricular, athletic, performing arts, and community events were among her most cherished memories. She has tackled extremely difficult issues with numerous school boards for a decade and a half. Dr. Sandy has been able to create a financially sound school system and fend off the consolidation. She has been an advocate for all students in our district. The Board of School Trustees dedicated the Board Room in recognition of her years of service to the School City of Whiting. Dr. Martinez also received a placque from the Buckley Wall of Fame for her dedication to the BWF Program. The entire community would like to thank her for her dedication, leadership, and devotion to our Whiting students, staff, and community.
