I am a native of Waycross, GA and recently retired from the Charlton County School System after 34 1/2 years. I served as a teacher, principal at the elementary, middle and high school levels, served one year as an Associate Superintendent and served the last 9 1/2 years as Superintendent. While I continue to reside in Charlton County, I do begin working in the Leadership, Curriculum and Workforce Development Department of Valdosta State University as an Assistant Professor in January. My wife and I have two daughters, Mallory, a student at VSU and Meagan Schwing, a teacher in Charlton County.
