Dennis Fordham

Dr. Fordham has successfully served as Superintendent in two school systems in Georgia. In addition, he also served as President of the Georgia School Superintendent Association (GSSA). Dr. Fordham is known across the State for developing leaders and has promoted many leaders into principal positions (over 50+) during his tenure including our current State School Superintendent, Dr. John Barge. Several of Dr. Fordham’s former principals have become superintendents. Dr. Fordham received the first Bill Barr Leadership Award from GSSA. This award is presented annually to one superintendent in Georgia who has displayed outstanding leadership ability.
