2015 SUPERINTENDENT OF THE YEAR ANNOUNCED
by John Zauner on 9/2/2014
GSSA’s selection committee has narrowed the 2015 SOY competition to four. The four candidates are: Dr. Philip Lanoue of Clarke County, Dr. Curtis Jones of Spalding County, Dr. Randy Shearouse of Effingham County, and Dr. Phyllis Edwards of Decatur City Schools.Congratulations to all four finalists, their Boards of Education, and school communities they represent. All of these candidates have been working on some very special things in their respective school systems. Their communities and students are certainly the beneficiaries of the leadership each is providing. We had nearly 30 nominations for the selection committee to review and discuss. The selection committee is made up of past Georgia Superintendents of the Year that are still active in their profession. All the nominees represented Georgia from all over the state and the decision making process was very challenging to narrow to just four finalists. Again, GSSA is proud to have these four finalists represent Georgia as 2015 Superintendent of the Year!
