A new hire from Miller County, Georgia will be taking over at Rockmart High School in early May following the pending retirement of Robyn Teems coming up this Thursday.
Teems is being replaced by Miller County High School principal Dr. Bo Adams starting on May 3 after his hire was approved in a special called session on March 23.
“He was selected for the position after interviewing with a panel of stakeholders made up of district leadership, RHS faculty and staff, and parent representatives,” Assistant Superintendent Dr. Katie Thomas reported in a release this morning.
He’s hailing from Colquitt, Georgia and comes to Rockmart with a number of years of experience in leadership roles. He previously served as Principal of Samson High School and Wayne County High School before his current position in Miller County. His time in education leadership in Southwest Georgia also includes time as athletic director, CTAE Director, as a high school assistant principal, an alternative schools director, a summer school director and a middle school to high school transition coordinator.
He also served previously as a High School Facilities Coordinator. Before he was in administration, Adams served as a high school teacher as well.
The release stated that “Dr. Adams and his family are excited to begin their transition to the Rockmart community. A meet and greet with the staff is in the process of being planned.”
“We look forward to Dr. Adams’ arrival and his vision for the continuation of excellence at Rockmart High School,” the release finished.
