Long-serving community leader C.D. Woodrome recently announced his retirement from the position of city secretary for the City of Ivanhoe. Woodrome was feted at a retirement party last Wednesday at the Ivanhoe Civic Center. He served the city for 13 years, since its incorporation, and his successor is Hailey Williams.

At the party, former mayor Cathy Bennett and current mayor Skip Blackstone spoke of Woodrome’s wealth of knowledge and the immense resource he has been to the city. Bennett said that the millions of dollars in grant funding the city obtained would not have been possible without Woodrome. Blackstone said it has been an honor to know with and work with Woodrome, and he takes with him an enormous amount of “tribal knowledge.”

Prior to working for Ivanhoe, Woodrome served in many capacities throughout the county, including as Pct. 1 Commissioner. He has also served with many organizations as a volunteer, and was the news director for many years at KVLL AM, which was the radio station in Woodville.
