Interim Superintendent Dr. Ronda Hightower
Laurens County Schools
The Laurens County School System has a stellar team of folks working every day for the best interest of kids, and it is truly humbling to be a part of this team. I have the honor of serving our students, staff, and community as Interim Superintendent for the Laurens County School System.
I have contributed to and gained knowledge from many different perspectives in the Laurens County School System beginning my career in education as a BOE secretary, then paraprofessional, teacher, and assistant principal before accepting a principalship in Wheeler County in 2009. In 2016, I returned home to Laurens County Schools to serve as a director, associate superintendent, and currently interim superintendent.
I firmly believe in improving the lives of children, and firmly attest there is neither a more honorable nor more powerful means to fulfill this calling than through education. Educating the whole student in a caring, warm environment is what the Laurens County School System is all about. We believe in providing Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships to every student, every teacher, every day.
