Waller Receives GSSA Presidents Award
Toombs County Schools Superintendent Barry Waller received the Georgia School Superintendents Association (GSSA) Presidents Award at the annual Spring Meeting of the organization on April 20. 'I am humbled to be recognized by my peers for such a prestigious honor,” Waller commented. “There is a lot of great work going on in Toombs County by a lot of great people, and I am extremely blessed to be a part of it.”
This award is given annually at the spring meeting of the GSSA, and recognizes the innovative and creative work of superintendents that is having a positive impact on the local district. To be considered for this award, superintendents must be nominated by one of the 16 RESA directors; those nominations are then considered by the current GSSA president and awarded based on their recommendation.
Waller was nominated for his work with the newly-created heavy equipment operation pathway by First District RESA Executive Director Richard Smith.
