the great work that has been done at SHS and look forward to working with the students who I came to know during my time at Red Bud Middle School. These students are my students (many I have been involved with since Pre- K) and I am excited to have the opportunity to support them during the high school phase of their educational careers.”
Amy Stewart has also called Gordon County Schools home her entire professional career. A native of the Red Bud community and a product of the school district, Stewart attended Red Bud schools before graduating from Gordon Central High School, where she returned to begin her teaching career, shortly after earning her undergraduate degree from Shorter University. Stewart went on to advance her education by earning graduate degrees in education and leadership from Berry College and Lincoln Memorial University.
In 2005, Stewart transferred to Sonoraville High School as a member of its inaugural faculty. During her teaching tenure, Stewart was named District Teacher of the Year on two different occasions, once going on to be named a state finalist. She has presented on multiple occasions on both state and national stages to share her expertise with colleagues across the nation. In 2008, Stewart took on the role of assistant principal at Sonoraville High School. In this capacity, she has served as a Fellow for the nationally- recognized Schlecty Center and has conducted multiple professional development sessions for the Professional Association of Georgia Educators.
Stewart is steeped in the community, serving as a member of the Gordon Optimist Club and Fairmount Kiwanis. She and her husband Jody, also a native of Gordon County, have two children. Luke is a senior at Sonoraville High School, and Zane is a part of Red Bud Middle School’s eighth grade class. The Stewarts are members of Rockbridge Community Church, where Amy serves on the worship team.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school where I have so much history and family connection,” said Stewart. “I have been blessed to serve the Phoenix Nation for more than a decade, and I look forward to continuing my service to this community and upholding the high expectations established by Mrs. Hayes and her staff.”
The two leaders will assume their new roles effective Feb. 26.
