Smokey Barn News July 2, 2013
Robertson County Schools has selected a new Assistant Director of Schools. The announcement that Dr. Linda Cash had been chosen as the new Assistant Director was released to Smokey Barn News in a letter Tuesday July 2nd 2013.
“Dr. Cash comes to the district most recently from Union University where she served as the assistant dean of graduate education, and brings a broad range of experience to her new position. Director Mike Davis said, “She will provide a great deal of expertise in developing a more rigorous curriculum for the children enrolled in our school system and will be a tremendous asset to the entire school district.” Cash will assume her new responsibilities beginning Wednesday, July 3, 2013″ the school release said.
You may remember Cash as a candidate to replace Dan Whitlow as the Dir of R.C. Schools. I can only guess that school officials got a good look at Cash’s credentials during the interview process for Dan’s job and liked what they saw.
Smokey chatted with Linda on the phone today for a bit, long enough to discern a real caring for children. I asked her “why Robertson County?, with your background you could go anywhere. She said the fact that the community was still well connected to the education system in Robertson County was a big plus to her.
“I am very excited about coming to Robertson County as the Assistant Director of Schools. I am very pleased to be able to serve the students, the teachers and community and just hope that we are the fastest growing district in Tennessee so that we provide the best for our students, teachers and community.” Cash said.
