Haynes is JDC Administrator of the Year

The Jefferson Davis County Administrator of the Year was awarded to
Dr. Crystal Haynes at the January school board meeting held last week.
Dr. Haynes is the principal of G.W. Carver Elementary School in Bassfield.
Under her leadership, G. W. Carver received a B grade by the State
Board of Education.
After being called to the podium, Dr. Haynes called Vanessa Brown to join her.
“I did not do this alone,” said Haynes.
“I could not have done it without Ms. Brown.”
Brown is the lead teacher at Carver.
“No matter what I asked her to do, she took the reigns.”
“I can’t take this myself. We are a team.”
“Thank you all and  thank you Ms. Brown for being my teammate. We have
been together for almost eight years.”
“A good leader recognizes when they are surrounded by good people,”
said school board president Von Norwood.
“You recognize your staff all the time for the great things they do.”
“We are fortunate to have you in Jefferson Davis County.”
