Chresal Threadgill named Alabama's Superintendent of the Year
"Very seldomly am I speechless, but today, I am speechless," Mr. Threadgill said after being presented with the honor. "Beyond anything, I am both humble and grateful for the opportunity to represent the State of Alabama. Thanks to each individual who has supported me and those whose shoulders I stand upon who have mentored me along the way. Today is only the beginning of continuing my passion and dedication to the education of children. I am proud of Mobile County Public Schools and the opportunity to bring this recognition home to #TeamMCPSSS, and to Mobile, Alabama. I am truly blessed beyond measure to represent not myself but the entire MCPSS family as Superintendent of the Year for the State of Alabama! It is a great day for Mobile County."
