Whitfield Co. Chooses Hayes as Superintendent

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, GA (WRCB)--  Education leaders in Whitfield County Schools say the school district
began to transform into a learning organization several years ago and
school board members want Danny Hayes to lead staff as superintendent on
the next leg of that journey.

"The staff here at Whitfield County Schools has a strong sense of
direction and focus that is benefiting our students," Hayes said.

"Anyone can look at the improvements in student achievement and
attendance and see the return on our investment in professional learning
has been incredible for our staff and students.

"I look forward to working with our team to move forward on our journey
to becoming a learning organization," he said.

Hayes will replace Katie Brochu, who has led the district since July 1,
2005. She is moving in June to become superintendent of Richland School
District Two in Columbia, S.C.

Hayes brought his rich background in Georgia education to Whitfield when
he was recommended in 2006 to be Assistant Superintendent of Human
Resources.

His career began in 1979 as a physical education teacher in Leesburg. He
has spent 28 years serving students and staff as teacher, high school
assistant principal, high school principal, curriculum director, and
human resources director at other schools and districts around the
state. He has also coached middle and high school basketball, baseball,
football, and wrestling.
