Jute Wilson lauded by GSSA

Lamar County school superintendent Dr. Jute Wilson received the President’s Award from the Georgia School Boards Association (GSSA) during its Bootstrap Conference in Savannah over the weekend. These awards are given to superintendents for outstanding leadership in their school systems and communities. Dr. Wilson is in his fifth year with the local system. Since his arrival, his system has consistently exceeded the state average on graduation rates with a record high of 91.23% in 2015, which ranked among the highest performing systems in Georgia. This is an exceptional success story as the Lamar system is small and rural (approximately 2300 students) with a 70% economically disadvantaged population. For much more on this story, see the 4.30.19 print edition of The Herald Gazette.
