Sharron A. Marcus has spent more than 20 years serving the kids and community of Sumter County GA. She is a dedicated and involved community member and educator. She has served as a teacher, a counselor, and a principal. Within the past years, she has diligently served Sumter County through the many changes and re-configurations. With each move, she has been positive and dedicated to the mission of graduating all students. Each of her schools have shown increases in student achievement scores and a decrease in disciplinary problems Not only does she serve the students well, but she is firm, fair, and consistent with the staff. She leads by example and models excellence. Even though her most recent past school showed the highest percentage of student growth of any school in Sumter County during the 2015-2016 school term, and her current school Sumter County Middle has shown a significant decrease in discipline incidents, the School board has chosen not to renew her contract  for the 2017-2018 school term. This decision is counterproductive for the children of Sumter County.  Mrs. Marcus is an active and supportive administrator, that has proven to lead her staff to improving learning conditions for all students. Please sign this petition, so that the board members will know that this community needs to keep Mrs. Marcus to help further advance the mission to graduate all students college and career ready.
