Johnny Williams’ last day of service with the Chesterfield County School District will coincide with the last fiscal day of the school’s calendar, June 30. Williams has served as superintendent for the district for the past decade. He was personnel director for several years, and before that he was a principal and a teacher. In all, Williams has spent 42 years of his professional career in education.
Williams said it is “with a heavy heart” that he begins his retirement. However, he also said he is looking forward to spending more time with his family and friends.
“Working with Dr. Williams has been my great privilege,” said Brad Willard, chief financial officer for the Chesterfield County School District. “Since joining CCSD, I have been positive about what each day would bring because of his leadership, presence, and dedication to the continued success of the Chesterfield County School District. In a short period of time, I have learned a great deal from him about school district administration and operations.”
Ken Buck, public relations director for Chesterfield County School District, said, “Dr. Williams’ contribution to the people of Chesterfield County can’t be adequately measured. His decades of education in the county means that literally thousands have been positively impacted by him. And on a personal level, I will greatly miss his mentorship and wealth of experience.”
