School money expert Karl Fulmer is taking a second retirement, this time as chief financial officer for classrooms along the north shore of Lake Murray.

Fulmer is stepping down Jan. 6 after coming out of retirement in 2009 to assist schools in Lexington-Richland 5 after a lengthy career in Lexington 1.

“I wouldn’t have left my first retirement for anywhere other than District 5,” he said in a statement.

Fulmer, an educator for 47 years, said Lexington-Richland 5 is in good shape academically and financially.

He will be succeeded by Len Richardson, finance director at the state Department of Education for the past 13 years.
