North Georgia RESA Welcomes Dr. Samuel DePaul as our new Executive Director.
On behalf of the North GA RESA Board of Control and staff, we are excited about starting the 2016-17 school year, and our RESA's Renaissance. As the new Executive Director, I am very excited and pleased with the preparations that have occurred for the new school year. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the hard work that Mr. Lex Rainey and the staff did during the past few months to prepare. I have always kept collaboration or laboring together as I like to define the word first and foremost in my administration and leadership style. Working together is the only way to garner support and nurture success.
I have met the staff and most of our Board of Control members; and I am looking enthusiastically at actively and closely working with everyone associated with the North GA RESA. I believe that my primary focus this year as the new director will be to facilitate and lead, growing the RESA and establishing it as a first class, premiere agency supporting our school systems, higher education institutions and other affiliates. While I have always believed in crawling before walking, walking before running, and running before sprinting; I believe that in my observations during the past several weeks, we will be able to hit the ground running.
In addition to new staff, I am excited about the work that Mr. Gayton did with our website. I trust you too will find it handsome and much more easily navigated. My expectations for all of us will be to always remain professional in all that we do. Regarding new staff, we welcome Ms. Fran Whitfield as our new finance director and we certainly appreciated and are thankful for the hard work and dedication of recent retirees and those who resigned: Carol Weaver, Ben Weaver, Lisa Smith, Alice Ellis, James Ellis, Ralph Cox, and Jim Hagopian.
Moving forward, please know that my door is always open and or I am only a phone call away. Again, I look forward to a great school year, and working with everyone willing to support and grow the North GA RESA.
Samuel A. DePaul, Ph.D.
