“I would like to apologize to the Board of Education of Greenville City Schools for my inappropriate behavior, and I wish to do this to protect any adverse effects for Greenville City Schools, the Green Way Navy and the Navy,” the letter said.
A follow-up letter signed by Eldred was submitted Dec. 10.
“I wish to convey that I do not want to resign but am doing so under pressure and in the best interest of the school and the Green Wave Navy,” it said.
He said he did nothing involving a child nor anything illegal but offered no other details.

Eldred was hired by district in April 2015.
His personnel file did not show any previous discipline from the district.
