Georgia State Superintendent Richard Woods’ statement on the passing of Dr. David “Butch” Mosely

“Public education in Georgia has lost a giant. Dr. Butch Mosely had over 40 years of educational experience at all levels, but even beyond that experience, he brought insight and integrity to everything he did. Dr. Mosely was grounded in common sense, his core was rural Georgia, and he always had the heart of an educator. He leaves behind an unmatched legacy.”
