A message from Dr. Horton


To the students, parents, and staff of Talladega, I want to tell you how excited I am about the opportunity to serve as your superintendent. The Talladega City School System is an outstanding system and one which holds so much promise.

The people I have met in Talladega have been wonderful, and they have shared with me their hopes and dreams for our system. I am firmly convinced that our best days are ahead, and that if we work together, we have the capability to the move the Talladega City School System to a new level. We owe nothing less to boys and girls who walk through our doors each morning.

I look forward to working with each Board member and with all stakeholders in our community as we begin this journey together.

Hello Dr. Horton and welcome to Talladega City Schools! We have the best central office staff, hard working and dedicated administrators, amazing teachers and staff members, supporting parents, and bright, talented students who make us proud each and every day! As you read our school blog, you will find many positive things happening within all of our schools. Unfortunately, we have issues as does any system, and I truly appreciate your positive attitude and your decision to lead our system. I look forward to working with you and offer my help and support in any area. Good luck!!

I am excited to work with you. I agree that the Talladega City School System has much to offer our students.

You will quickly discover that the teachers and administrators are a dedicated bunch. There is also parent support throughout the district. Thanks for agreeing to come to Talladega City.

I believe in the quote by Helen Keller, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

I look forward to serving under your direction and helping to move our schools forward.

As the soon to be "former superintendent" of the Talladega City Schools, I am looking forward to working with Dr. Horton as we begin the transition process.

The Talladega City Schools will be in good hands.

Welcome to Talladega! I am sure our next tour of the community will be a bit more involving and quite a bit more official. If I can be of assistance during the transition, do not hesitate to call.
