Thomas Knight, former superintendent of Bethel Park schools, passed away on Friday.
Knight, who was the superintendent since 2006, took a leave of absence from his duties at the beginning of July.

"Every decision he made was well thought-out and based primarily on the best interests of our students, staff and community."
Officials said the cause of his death is unknown.
