ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Governor asked Lee County School Superintendent Dr. Lawrence Walters to serve on the state's Professional Standards Commission.

Dr. Walters accepted the appointment and will travel to Atlanta in January for several days of orientation. That's when Walters will learn whether he'll be assigned to the certification division or the ethics division. Walters says he's honored to be chosen.

"There's a lot of responsibility associated with it but yes I'm excited and I'm glad people from southwest Georgia are getting appointed to some of these committees," said Dr. Lawrence Walters, Lee County Schools Superintendent.

The Commission tries to simplify the teacher certification process and improve the level of preparation of educators. It also investigates criminal and ethics complaints against teachers and imposes disciplinary action.
