EL DORADO, AR (KTVE) - A reception has been held for retiring El Dorado School District Superintendent Bob Watson.

Watson announced his retirement back in January, after 40 years with the district. 

He spent 29 of those years serving as superintendent.

Watson says he has enjoyed his journey with the El Dorado school system and is happy to have accomplished so much.

"The biggest accomplishment would probably be the building of the facility that we're in. It was significant in terms of the stakes that we needed to look at our high school," he said.

Watson's last day as Superintendent will be June 30.
