Troup County School System - Welcome Dr. Brian Shumate!

Dr. Brian Shumate Says He is Ready for TCSS

I am honored and humbled to have been named the Superintendent of TCSS. As a 32 year veteran in public education, I’m excited about the opportunity that I have been given and the potential of where this system can go from here. After my visit to the area, I can tell the system is standing on a very firm foundation with great kids, families, staff, facilities, and community support. I believe we can collectively move into the next echelon of the state in all areas.

Real Men Read at West Point Elementary

Students at West Point Elementary School were recently treated to special guest readers in their classrooms. Community volunteers, including several school board members, volunteered to read as part of the third annual Real Men Read initiative.

This initiative brings community members into the school while promoting the benefits of reading. Each man was assigned to a classroom where they read a story and shared their own personal reading history with the students. The men also told the students how reading impacts them now and how they utilize reading in their careers.

You are invited to join us as we celebrate the stories, creativity, and talent of our TCSS students.

Michelle Taylor Says 'The Story of Ruby Bridges' Teaches a Lesson on Bravery

Michelle Taylor is a media specialist at Gardner Newman Middle School. She is inspired by Robert Coles' The Story of Ruby Bridges because it teaches a great lesson on personal strength. Taylor said:

This story is a great lesson in personal strength as Ruby talked herself through walking through the mob of angry adults and children who were boycotting her going to a "white" school. She was the first African-American child to attend an all-white school in New Orleans and the South. On the first day of school, she had to be escorted by U.S. marshals because of violent crowds. Her bravery paved the way for integration nationwide. I haven't read it in many years but the story reminds me how strong we can be when we need to.
