HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — One month from today, the Houston County Board of Education will be seeing a new face in the superintendent position: Brandy White.
White is a father of two and held the assistant principal position at Webb Elementary School for nine years.
This change in position is a big step for him, especially with all the protocols schools are now taking, but he feels ready to jump in.
“We haven’t heard of any severe cases with some of our kids that have tested positive so that’s a positive,” White said. “As far as being able to keep the kids in school, we’re hoping the kids are staying healthy and not getting sick. They definitely need to be in school face to face.”
White is looking forward to working with the board, after meeting the members and feeling good connections.
He hopes to start bringing in newer technology to some of the schools and even funding some physical updates.
“The other thing, I think we’re going to be able to make some capitol improvements as far as our facilities are concerned,” White said. “I think there’s a lot of people excited about that so those are probably the two biggest things out the gate.”
White is very excited and looks forward to helping all students, whether in person or virtual.
“So we’re doing everything we can to bridge those gaps and try to provide as much instruction as we can and extra help as we can with those students,” he added.
