In 1983 he accepted the position of principal at Troy High School north of Detroit, but returned toAlbion in 1987 when he was hired as superintendent. Meloy’s previous experience with the Albion school system made his new position easier. During a 1987 newspaper interview, Meloy praised the Albion school board: “It’s as solid a board as the district has ever had. I think the community recognizes that. That’s a real strength of the Albion school district.”

On September 3, 1991, the school board appointed Judyth L. Dobbert superintendent.
