Avis Williams

Selma City Schools Superintendent Avis Williams was among 19 others to be named to the 2021 Superintendent to Watch by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA).

“I am thankful for Dr. Williams’ leadership and her commitment to keeping our scholars, families, and all of Team Selma connected and engaged using innovative communication strategies,” said Courtney Washington, Selma City Schools Community Engagement Specialist.

“Efforts such as Talk SUPT, Class Notes, and our Chat and Chew sessions with parents and stakeholders, help to further our mission and vision while shining a light on the amazing activities taking place throughout the school district.”

Those who were named were recognized for their "innovative and effective use of technology" when engaging with their school communities, said a press release from Selma City Schools. 

“Strong communication at the district level continues to be more important than ever in keeping school families, employees, students and community stakeholders well-informed and engaged,” said NSPRA Executive Director Barbara M. Hunter, APR.

“We’re proud to recognize this year’s recipients, who are committed to championing innovative communication efforts as an integral part of their district’s success.”
