“Mrs. Clark is a talented leader who is passionate about positively impacting students’ lives,” stated Scott Cowart, Superintendent of Carroll County School System. “Her experience, dedication, and continuous focus on providing premier service makes her a perfect fit for this role.”
Mrs. Clark obtained her bachelor’s degree in English from Rust College, a master’s degree in Post-Secondary Education from Troy University, and a specialist in Educational Leadership from Columbus State University.

Mrs. Clark believes that educational excellence is maintained through collaborative efforts among all stakeholders. She enthusiastically promotes enriching and engaging educational opportunities.
Mrs. Clark shared, “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve our school system in this capacity as we seek to reimagine public education for families desiring a non-traditional learning environment. Being selected as the first principal of our newly established Online Campus is an honor as much as the opportunity to re-conceptualize our alternative school program and provide our students and families with a quality education. The blend of experiences that I have had as a Regional Trainer for Advanced Placement, Advisor for the Georgia Department of Education, and as an Assistant Principal has exposed me to a variety of educational concepts that I will incorporate into the two school models towards ensuring an impactful educational experience for all students.”
