From the Superintendent...............

My name is Lance Heard and I am currently serving as the Echols Co. Superintendent of Schools. I am excited and honored to hold this position in such a close knit community that clearly values education and puts children first.

From my experience of working in other school systems, I can assure everyone that Echols Co. has a very special school system that is dedicated to ensuring that every child gets the best possible education.

It is the goal of the Board of Education, myself and the entire faculty and staff of the Echols Co. School System to continue to build on the tradition of educational excellence that already exists here.

Please feel free to contact me if I can ever be of assistance to you.

Best regards,

Lance Heard
