From Coweta County Schools Press Release
The Coweta County Board of Education elected member Amy Dees to serve as Board of Education Chair for 2019.
The Board held election of officers during its first meeting of 2019, on January 8. Dees represents the residents in Coweta 1st school board district, and has served as the board’s Vice-Chair for two years. 3rd district board member Beth Barnett was elected to serve as the board’s Vice-Chair, and Winston Dowdell was elected to serve as Board Treasurer.
Dees succeeds At-Large board member Larry Robertson as board Chairman.
Superintendent Steve Barker thanked Robertson for his service as Board Chair for the past two years. “I appreciate the job you’ve done,” Barker told Robertson. “I have appreciated your professionalism and your willingness to always do what is best for children.”
“Thank you for this honor,” Dees said to her fellow board members. She joined Barker in thanking Robertson for his terms as board chairman, and said that she has benefited by observing him and past chairs Frank Farmer, Winston Dowdell and Sue Brown serve in the role in past years.
Dees is the second woman to serve as Board Chair, following Brown’s previous years leading the Coweta County Board of Education.
The Coweta County Board of Education is comprised of seven members, including five district representatives and two at-large members elected county-wide. Board members serve without compensation.
