GUNTERSVILLE, Ala.-- Guntersville City Schools announced on Monday that Jennifer Williams had accepted a job with the Guntersville City Schools as Chief Academic Officer.
“I feel honored to be chosen to serve as Chief Academic Officer for The Schools of Guntersville, a system with a strong legacy of achievement and success” stated Williams. “ I look forward to not only being a part of that legacy but also to working toward continued excellence.”
Williams served for three years as DeKalb County Assistant Superintendent. Before that, she worked in the ELL program for the school system. She was one of the four finalists to be considered for the DeKalb County Superintendent of Education position that was vacated by Dr. Jason Barnett. Wayne Lyles was named as the new DeKalb County Superintendent last Monday.
“I have been blessed to work alongside some amazing people over the past 20 years in DeKalb County” stated Williams. “I will cherish my time in DeKalb as well as the relationships I have developed with the teachers and staff. However, I am honored and excited to begin this next chapter at the Schools of Guntersville.”
