  • Public Service at its Best!

    Public Service is such an important part of our community / state / country. Our society is structured so that many aspects of government are "overseen" by a group of volunteers. If people do not step forward and serve then this process fails to be impartial. Evidence of this occurs in our community with the City Board of Aldermen / Park Board / Fire District Board / Church Boards / Educational Foundation Boards / etc.... The Board of Education is one of the most important examples of public service. I would like to thank Dr. Devon Jarvis for his past service on the Willard BOE. His leadership presented a positive, level headed, intelligent, common sense approach to the position. He has shared that he will likely choose to serve again in the future and I will look forward to that occurring. Filling Dr. Jarvis's open seat is Dr. Janell Royal. Dr. Royal is a familiar face in Willard Schools. Her experience in education spans in excess of 30+ years. I believe she has a deep understanding of how public schools operate and best practice in BOE service. I look forward to her continued contributions to Willard Schools.

    Have a great weekend!

    Dr. Medlin

  • Notification System Signup

    One of the tasks we have as a school district is getting important information to you in a timely fashion. We believe it’s helpful to you and to the school if you have information about daily attendance, school cancellations, important reminders and emergencies as soon as possible.
