Emanuel County Schools Superintendent Dr. Kevin A. Judy, was honored recently during the Georgia School Superintendents Association’s Spring Bootstrap Conference in Savannah.
The President’s Award was given to Dr. Judy during a presentation in front of his peers from across the state. These awards are given to superintendents for outstanding leadership in their systems and communities.
Brownyn Ragan-Martin, GSSA president-elect, shared what earned Judy the award during remarks before conference attendees.
“Forward thinking, Dr. Judy saw a tremendous need to provide leadership opportunities to teachers in the school improvement process,” Ragan-Martin said. “He has challenged the status quo and created an environment of collaboration by engaging parents, administrators and teachers in ensuring academic success for all students.
“He is known for his honest, straightforward approach to making the educational process better for the students of Emanuel County. It is evidenced in the rising student achievement results the Emanuel County School System is producing.”
Central Savannah River Area Regional Education Service Agency Executive Director Gene Sullivan noted his fortunes in working with an exemplary leader such as Judy.
He went on to state, “Superintendent Judy exemplifies the leadership needed to make a difference in lives of those he serves. He is an ideal recipient of the GSSA President’s Award.”
He has been a paraprofessional, teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent of human resources, and now superintendent.
