Sue Anderson, Director of Special Programs and Assessment, was selected as the District-Level Administrator of the Year by her peers and recognized by the Wakulla County School Board.
Anderson began her career in education as a Crawfordville teacher in 1975. Hired by Principal Randy Anderson, she taught fifth grade.
After teaching for three years she took a leave of absence and returned in 1991 as the secondary schools at-risk specialist/mentoring and service learning coordinator. In 2004 Anderson was appointed as the Director of Special Programs and Assessment.
Originally from Birmingham, AL, Anderson graduated from the University of Alabama with a BS degree in Elementary Education. Her family moved to Wakulla County in 1975.
“One of my fondest memories working for the district,” notes Anderson, “was a Service Learning Project that involved the development of Azalea Park. Working with Ray Gray, WHS ROTC students as well as at-risk middle school students, learning landscaping in a cooperative setting was very rewarding.”
Sue Anderson has also served as a member of the District Advisory Council Team, The Wakulla Chamber of Commerce, The Florida Association of State and Federal Program Administrators and the Florida Association of Testing Administrators.
Chief Academic Officer Beth Mims adds, “Sue epitomizes the grace and hospitality of the south, even in the midst of constantly changing assessment requirements and regulations. She does a great job of maintaining her network for information. She develops relationships with people in many different departments and corresponds with them to assure that they are available to answer the difficult questions that arise.
She is detail oriented. She is great with budgets. She gets the job done every day. But most importantly, she is a true friend and an amazing administrator.”
