Dr. Gary Lilly Earns
Superintendent of the Year Nomination

Director of Schools Gary Lilly has been named Superintendent of the Year for Tennessee’s First District and as a result is the nominee from the First District for the Tennessee Superintendent of the Year.

In a letter to the Bristol Tennessee Board of Education from Dr. Dale Lynch, director of schools for Hamblen County, Dr. Lynch said, “Dr. Lilly’s selection was based on outstanding leadership shown throughout his years of service. He is recognized by his peers across the state for his great understanding of technological issues, as well as for championing one of Tennessee’s finest school districts.”

Dr. Lilly, who is finishing his fifth year as director, has served two years as the chairman of the First Tennessee Superintendents Study Council. There are eight districts total in the state. Each district submits a nominee for Tennessee Superintendent of the Year.

“I am honored to have been selected for this recognition by my counterparts and friends in the First Tennessee District,” Dr. Lilly said. “All of them are just as deserving of the honor, which is why I so appreciate and value their support. We are blessed to have a tremendous faculty and staff in our district.  Anything positive that has been accomplished during my tenure as director is directly attributable to their hard work and dedication to our students.”
