The Georgia Schools Superintendent Association announced the four finalists for 2011 Superintendent of the Year, including Rockdale County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Samuel King. This is King's third time as a finalist for the award. The winner will be named in December.
The four finalists are:
Mr. Chris Erwin, Superintendent, Banks County Schools
Dr. Sam King, Superintendent, Rockdale County Schools
Dr. Emily Lembeck, Superintendent, Marietta City Schools
Mr. Leonard McCoy, Superintendent, Colquitt County Schools
The four finalists were chosen from among a field of 20 superintendents who had been nominated, three-fourths of them placed in nomination by the members of their local boards of education. All four finalists will now complete a lengthy document prepared by the American Association of School Administrators and submit it for a second round of judging. The winner, who will represent Georgia in the national competition, will be named during the Dec. 3 Awards Luncheon that is part of the annual GSBA/GSSA Winter Conference at the Waverly Hotel in Cobb County.
