The fledgling Pike Road, Alabama, school system took a big leap forward by hiring an executive director of the Pike Road Education Leadership Council. And they didn't hire just anybody. Ed Richardson will lead the Council in their negotiations with Montgomery County, and oversee the beginning stages of setting up the town's school system. Anyone that has spent any time in Alabama in the past 20 years should know him. Mr. Richardson has served as the President of Auburn University, and also the Superintendent of Education for the entire state of Alabama. Learn more about this huge announcement in this Montgomery Advertiser article by Annie McCallum Bitter. Richardson tells the Advertiser that he sees the new Pike Road school system as a "golden opportunity to form a very strong school system" and "You seldom have an opportunity to start a school system and to build it in a very qualitative way with parents who are highly interested."
