Hall County School Board Chairman Nath Morris was among the 2019 Pioneers in Education honored recently by Pioneer RESA.

The award is given annually to those individuals who make a positive impact on students and education, and each of the 15 districts within RESA’s service area names its recipient. 

Morris is in his 19th year of service as a school board member for the Hall County School District. He is a past president of the Georgia School Board Association, and he serves as a mentor to youth in Hall County.

"Mr. Morris guided our school district through the worst recession since the Great Depression, all while being a calm and consistent voice for children and for public education in Georgia," said Dr. Brad Brown, Hall County's Assistant Superintendent of Personnel at Friday's ceremony.  "Nath continued to model the urgency of moving forward, challenged us to innovate, and supported us in creating opportunities for students despite the financial circumstances."

Superintendent Will Schofield has served alongside Morris for 15 years.

"Our community is blessed to have the dedicated servant leadership Nath Morris provides. He consistently makes decisions based upon what he believes will best meet the needs of the boys and girls within our district. His attitude and influence are strong examples of our desire to become the most caring place on earth," Schofield said. 

Pioneer RESA said recipients of the Pioneer in Education Award serve their districts in a number of different roles: teachers, directors, board members, transportation specialists among other positions. The key component to receiving the honor is having made a substantial, positive impact on the lives of students.
