Lumpkin Schools Supt. retiring

Lumpkin County Schools Supt. Rob Brown plans to retire Dec. 31, after seven and a half years in the post and 28 years in public education – all of it in Georgia.

Dr. Brown began his career as a teacher and a coach in 1996. His roles over the years included teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal, executive director of high schools, and superintendent of two school districts. He served as the Georgia School Superintendent’s Association President in 2021-22 and was selected as a Georgia Association of Educational Leaders’ Jim Puckett Award winner in 2022.

The school board has chosen Deputy Supt. Sharon Head (pictured above with Dr. Brown) as the Sole Finalist for the forthcoming vacancy. However, by law it must now wait 14 days to receive public input before Head can be officially hired.
