Dr. Lisa Herring, Superintendent, Atlanta Public Schools, Georgia

Dr. Lisa Herring brings a servant heart and more than 25 years of experience in education with her to Atlanta Public Schools as its new superintendent. Embracing a passionate belief that education is the greatest equalizer, Dr. Herring believes in the inner strength, power, and talent of all children. Success, she says, does not rest on where we begin in life but how each of us maximizes our talents and pursues our purpose. The concept is critical in serving, supporting and educating children and future leaders. A Macon, Georgia, native and graduate of both Spelman College and Georgia Southern University, Dr. Herring established her professional career by teaching in both public and private schools in urban and rural settings. These experiences allow her to impact the lives of students from diverse social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. Dr. Herring comes to APS from Birmingham (Alabama) City Schools, where she led the district through a significant transformation by stabilizing leadership, improving system performance, and increasing student achievement. Under her leadership, BCS received its first award of full district accreditation after being under state takeover and conditional accreditation for several years. Her focus on instruction significantly reduced the number of failing schools as identified by the Alabama State Department of Education school report card.
