Meet the 2015-2016 NCSS Leadership Team

It’s the goal of Newton County School System to ensure that each and every student is “College & Career Ready” upon graduation. As a result, we try to foster a college atmosphere in school to get students even as young as kindergarten talking about the possibility of attending college. One of the ways we do this is by giving students information about our own college history! So meet the 2015-2016 Leadership Team of Newton County Schools and find out where we attended school and why; what our majors were; what types of degrees we hold; and even our favorite college memories. 

Just click on the picture above to read all about your Newton County School System Leadership Team!
