THOMASTON, Ga. — Pending an Executive Committee vote, the Georgia High School Association is expected to name Dalton Public Schools superintendent Tim Scott as its next executive director.

The GHSA announced Monday that Scott was the board of trustees’ choice to replace outgoing director Robin Hines, who announced his retirement on Nov. 29 and that he would step down from the post at the end of this academic year. Hines has been the GHSA executive director since 2017.

The GHSA’s 75-member executive committee will vote to make Scott’s hire official at its spring meeting on April 15 in Macon.

In a statement from GHSA president Jim Finch, “We are excited about Dr. Tim Scott being named sole finalist for the Executive Director position. Dr. Scott brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the association.

“It was clear during the search and interview process, Dr. Scott was able to articulate a plan and vision to move the GHSA forward. We look forward to his leadership and are confident he can continue to provide a positive and enriching experience for our student athletes.”

Scott has been Dalton’s superintendent since 2018.

Finch also said that two other candidates were interviewed by the board during the process.
