MOULTRIE — Trudie Hill, named chairman of the Colquitt County Board of Education in January, was recently named to the 2015 Georgia School Boards Association Government Operations Committee.
The GSBA President annually makes appointments to this committee after deliberation with the staff and Board of Directors.
As a member of the GOC, Hill would not only represent the local school board, but would represent the interests of all of Georgia's school boards.
Duties of the Governmental Operations Committee include voting on the recommendations for legislative positions submitted by the GSBA membership and offering its recommendations to the GSBA Delegate Assembly during the 2015 Summer Conference.
At the Delegate Assembly, one voting delegate from each local school board votes on the GOC recommendations, and the resulting document of GSBA legislative positions becomes the cornerstone, which guides GSBA efforts for the coming year.
“Ms. Hill takes her responsibility to the students and to the community of Colquitt County very seriously. She is an advocate for students and a shining example of giving back to one’s community through public service. She will represent Colquitt County well at the state level,” said Superintendent Samuel DePaul.
Hill shared her thoughts on her appointments, “I am extremely honored and humbled to have been selected to serve on the Georgia School Board Association’s Governmental Operations Committee and to accept the responsibilities that have been entrusted to me. I am looking forward to serving and advocating on behalf of our students, the local school board and the other school boards across the State of Georgia. The primary focus is on raising student achievement and providing an opportunity for all children to achieve to their fullest potential so they can become successful citizens in the communities in which they live.”
