Several other key assignments were also approved:
* Ryan Foy was named assistant principal at Liberty Middle. Mr. Foy was assistant principal at James Clemens. Treva Stewart, former administrator over The Academy/Alternative school, was also hired as an assistant principal for LMS, a new position because of the 6hth grade move into the middle schools.
* Kevin Wilson was named administrator over The Academy/Alternative school, replacing Treva Stewart. Mr. Wilson was assistant principal at Discovery Middle.
* Kathleen “Kate” Wade was named assistant principal at Discovery Middle, a new position because of the expansion of 6th grade into the middle schools. Mrs. Wade was secondary math specialist at the Central Office.
* Carol Bohatch, science teacher at James Clemens High School, was named Science Specialist/Grant Administrator in the Central Office.
All of the hires were promoted from within Madison City School ranks. Board members said that speaks well for the District to groom so many qualified individuals. Superintendent Parker gave glowing comments about each hire and their qualifications.
Mr. Golliver replaces Melissa Mims, who accepted the position of Elementary Instruction Coordinator in February. Retired MCS administrator Kacy McKay finished out the school year as interim.
Mr. Golliver has worked 22 years for Madison City Schools. He has served the past six years as assistant principal at Liberty Middle and has been a teacher and coach for Bob Jones High School and Liberty Middle. A native of Florence, he graduated from the University of North Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in secondary education/social science and earned his master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
While serving in his administrative role at Liberty, Golliver also supported teachers districtwide by assisting with new teacher training facilitation.
Mr. Golliver’s wife, Diana, is an elementary teacher for Huntsville City Schools. They have two grown daughters: Anna Belle who has a photography business and is entering UNA this fall; and Jocelyn, who is married, works as a medical assistant while also taking college courses, and is expecting in July.
I a brief acceptance address, Mr. Golliver said he is “humbled and honored” to be selected. “Madison Elementary has a great reputation and proud tradition. I can’t wait to get started.”
