City Schools of Decatur Superintendent Phyllis Edwards has been named as one of four finalists for the 2015 Georgia Superintendent of the Year.

The Georgia School Superintendents Association made the announcement this week. The other finalists are:

– Dr. Philip Lanoue, Clarke County

– Dr. Curtis Jones, Spalding County

– Dr. Randy Shearouse, Effingham County

The winner will be announced at the Georgia School Superintendents Association/Georgia School Boards Association conference in December.

Edwards, who has been superintendent since 2003, said she is honored to be nominated.

“The CSD School Board nominated me for State Superintendent of the Year and the fact that they did so means the world to me,” Edwards told Decaturish. “As an educator of 40 years, one becomes a teacher and then moves forward in changing roles without the thought of recognition. The work of public educators centers around the students and families that we serve. I congratulate my other three colleagues who were selected as finalists for the Georgia Superintendent of the Year! As Superintendent of Schools here in the City Schools of Decatur, beginning my twelve year of tenure, I can say it has been a joy to lead this system of caring and dedicated teachers and staff!”
