During the 2022 Winter GAEL (Georgia Association of Educational Leaders) Conference, Bryan County Schools was among four districts in the state of Georgia to receive the GAEL “Vision Award” for Medium-Size districts, categorized by having a student population of 5,000–15,000 students.
This recognition is based on the districts’ vision to involve their leadership teams in statewide advocacy, professional learning, and networking.
“Bryan County Schools’ vision is Committed to Excellence and Success in ALL We Do and our leadership teams are the driving force in making certain the vision remains at the forefront of each and every day," said Dr. Paul T. Brooksher, Superintendent of Bryan County Schools.
"Providing them with the opportunity to participate in professional learning with peers from across the state and build a network of leaders, ensure our district never becomes stagnant. Sharing ideas and resources with colleagues is an excellent avenue that allows us to remain on the trajectory for continued success. I am honored Bryan County Schools was awarded the GAEL Vision Award and look forward to watching our schools continue to grow because of the service of our great leaders.” Brooksher stated.
GAEL has grown as an organization over the past 48 years to a current enrollment of over 2400 members with it’s mission to improve public education in Georgia through high quality leadership development, advocacy, and a resource network for educational leaders.
