Bryan running for Superintendent of the Year
The Superintendent of Butler County Schools, Amy Bryan, is in the running for a prestigious award – Superintendent of the Year for the state of Alabama.
Bryan has 30 years in the Butler County School System. She taught for 13 years at Greenville High, then worked 13
years in administration and is now working on her third year as Superintendent. She’s been named a Superintendent to Watch and her programs and social media efforts have won national awards. This fall she’s hoping to add that coveted Superintendent of the Year title to her resume.
She’s one of nine superintendents across the state competing for the title and will be representing the second school district. She said just being nominated is an honor, and is happy her school will be getting even more state recognition.
“I think every award, honor, recognition that we get – any one of us or group of us – makes our school system looks stronger. So I love it!” she said.
Her faculty and co-workers said Bryan has always done everything she could for her students and schools.
“Very encouraging and supportive, and any decisions that I want to make she’s always there to offer support and also guidance,” said Greenville Elementary School Principal Kent McNaughton. McNaughton has worked with Bryan for his entire teaching career, 23 years.
“I know she definitely goes above and beyond,” added Alisa Huggins. Hugggins and Bryan worked together as teachers at Greenville High Schools. “Our students are her number one goal. Everything is decided for the benefit of our students.”
Bryan doesn’t think she’ll win the title, but said she’s happy to be considered for the title with superintendents she respects. She’s also so happy her faculty and staff will support her, win or lose.
“She’s still going to be our Superintendent of the year regardless!” added McNaughton.
Bryan said the winner of Superintendent of the Year will be announced the second week of October at the Organization of Superintendents’ fall conference.
