“I’ve served as the assistant superintendent for the last 5 years, so I’m very excited to be moving into this role and very excited to be breaking ground on a new school,” said Hughes.

Both Williams and Hughes are excited to focus on their goal of advancing students in the Crisp County School District.

“Well my responsibilities will be to work very closely with the board, to work very closely with the budget. And of course, because we’re building a school there will be lots of responsibilities related to facilities,” said Hughes.

Williams says his transition starts now, but he’ll begin in his new role July 1.
