Brantley County Board of Education members, with heavy hearts, accepted the resignation Monday night of one of the school system’s most respected and beloved educators.
Assistant Superintendent Nehemiah Cummings, who served more than 18 years with the county in various positions as a teacher, coach principal, and trusted leader, tendered his resignation after accepting the superintendent’s job with the Worth County School System in Sylvester.
Cummings was one of three finalists for the position back in May after then Superintendent Bill Settle announced plans for retirement. Dr. Shannon Norfleet, Thomasville High School principal, was eventually named superintendent later that month over Miller County Schools superintendent Shane Miller and Cummings.
“This was definitely a tough decision,” Cummings said after the meeting. “My family and I have been extremely happy being a part of the Brantley County community.
This has become a part of our family.
“This is a good situation here and one we’re not running from. Brantley County has a great superintendent
(Dr. Kim Morgan) and she has been a great mentor to me.”
