Grant Lattin resigns from Prince William County school board

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - A Prince William County school board member has resigned suddenly, four months after beginning his third term.

Grant Lattin, who represented the Occoquan district, said in his resignation letter that he was leaving the position on Thursday "for personal reasons."

School system spokeswoman Irene Cromer says no further information about Lattin's resignation will be released.

Lattin has nine children. His youngest child currently attends Woodbridge High School, which five of his other children attended.

Lattin taught fifth grade at Antietam Elementary School from 1998 to 2001. He also served more than 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired as a lieutenant colonel in 1995.
