Sandra Seymour has served as assistant to the top Gator in Ila. Now, she’s traveling across the county to take charge of Colbert’s Cougars.
Seymour, Ila Elementary School’s assistant principal since 2007, has accepted the job as principal of Colbert Elementary School, a position held by Billy Heaton, who resigned to take a job closer to a family member who needs his help.
The move brings Seymour back to the origin of her education career. The new principal taught third grade at Colbert Elementary in 1985-86, her first job after graduating Magna Cum Laude at the University of Georgia in early childhood education.
