GSSA President's Award


Gainesville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Williams was one of the six school superintendents in the state awarded the 2019 President’s Award by the Georgia School Superintendents Association (GSSA).  The award was presented in October at GSSA’s Fall Bootstrap Conference in Athens and is normally given annually in April but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Superintendents are selected based on their outstanding leadership and the success of their school districts’ programs or initiatives that strongly support their students, families, and communities. "GSSA asks for nominations from our 16 RESA Directors from all over our state of superintendents in their region who are doing something exceptional or innovative and should be recognized for their accomplishments," said Dr. John Zauner, GSSA Executive Director. "This [award] was an effort by GSSA to recognize superintendents [who] were making a positive impact on their school districts and local [communities]."

Dr. Williams was recognized for Gainesville City School District’s role in establishing “The Hub” at Gainesville High School; a centralized, on-site student services center that provides students and families in Gainesville and Hall County with resources that assist with academic and workforce guidance, mental and behavioral health, and daily basic needs.  The center also serves as an intermediary connecting families with local organizations that provide assistance with services such as food, shelter, utilities, and healthcare.
