By  | 

GENEVA, Ala. (WTVY) - Things are starting to move in a new direction for the Geneva City School System.

For months, it was a blurry path in Geneva, as they had no school Superintendent at the start of this school year.

As of October 15th, Ron Snell has made the vision for the future of Geneva City Schools a lot more clear.

"well obviously this is the pinnacle of my career, i am just incredibly excited and thakful for this opportunity.."

Superintendent Snell has held just about every other position.

He taught and coached for 11 years and lead in administration for 21.

Snell thinks his 32 years of experience has prepared him for the role.

"I have been educated all around the country alongside kids from every culture and what i know is that has taught me to be incredibly optimistic about what kids can do and i think our job is to not sell them short."

Greg Adams, Geneva Parent
"What I am so encouraged about is he has been on different levels at other jobs.. larger schools smaller schools.. and so I am hoping he will be able to bring these new ideas that he has tried and tested to our school to our kids. .and better prepare them for the next level."

Ideas like keeping dual enrollment and improving school safety -- specifically at Mulkey Elementary School, where a redesign is in the works.

Superintendent Snell believes that because the community is so hands on, that with his ideas and their support.. they are ready to go to the next level.
