Warren County Director of Schools Bobby Cox has won statewide acclaim as he was named the educational Supervisor of the Year for the state of Tennessee.
Cox, who replaced former director Dr. Jerry Hale over the summer as director of schools, was bestowed the honor Tuesday during a statewide conference for educational leaders.
He won the award for his work as director-elect and for his efforts as assistant director for teaching and learning in Warren County.
“In Tennessee, we are doing more to highlight successes in our education system and that includes recognizing strong leaders,” said Tennessee Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman. “We are grateful for what they have done to prioritize the needs of students and improve the outcomes for them.”
Cox was among nine supervisors nominated for the regional finals, all nominated by their peers.
“This was a great honor,” Cox said, noting he wants to share the award with the many teachers and supervisors in the Warren County School System. “It’s really a testament to our school system. My name is on it, but there are a lot of people in our school system this goes out to.”
