Ware County - When Dr. Robert Bussey heard he'd won Georgia's high school principal of the year, he was more than surprised. "I asked them if they were sure they had the right person," said Bussey. "I couldn't believed I had excelled to that level."
He's a quiet and humble man, but a firm and fair leader. "I require two things of the students," said Bussey. "They have to come to school willing to learn and behave."
You'll rarely find Dr. Bussey behind his desk. He's usually mingling in the hall with students, and even cooking with the home economics classes. "I always try to be out there interacting with the students," said Bussey.
Dr. Bussey may be surprised at his honor, but students and teachers say there's no better choice. "He's like a father figure to us because we can talk to him about anything, yet we respect him as a leader," said Alsean Bryant, Student. "He makes coming to work a joy rather than a job," said Dana Pearce, Secretary.
Even after 33 years with the school system, Dr. Bussey says each day on the job is a pleasure and he has no plans for retirement.
