What an EPIC Day!

August 3, 2021

What an EPIC Day at WCSD’s EPIC4wRd Leadership Training Day!!! This was truly a day of Excellence, Professionalism, Innovation and Collaboration as teachers, administrators, and support staff from all over the District joined together to celebrate our successes, and ignite our drive for being Recalibrated, Refocused, Ready and Rocking!!! The District was really Rocking today!

Superintendent Hughes welcomed everyone with stirring comments about the value of all those who participate in the educational process of Walton County School District. Our culture of being Ready was reflected in the selection of Red as the color scheme for this year’s event! He shared, “We were ready before, and we are ready now.”  He ended with the quote from a story of a child completing a puzzle of the world that stated, “If knew if I could fix the man, I could fix the world.”

Special keynote speaker, Kyle Schwartz, renowned educator and author, inspired listeners and instilled a greater desire to really “see” and “know” our students as we strive to do everything possible to help every child succeed.

Over 75 presenters in content and choice sessions provided informative and engaging professional development sessions designed to support the Superintendent's vision for WCSD.

The day closed in a rousing pep rally with prizes, uplifting comments from our Teacher of the Year Leslie Coone, and special thanks by Superintendent Hughes for all those who made the day possible.
