RCSS Superintendent named Georgia Head Start Superintendent of the Year

Richmond County School System (RCSS) Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bradshaw was awarded the Georgia Head Start Association’s Superintendent of the Year Award for his partnership with the CSRA Economic Opportunity Authority (EOA), Inc. Head Start program.


“Dr. Bradshaw’s outstanding leadership and commitment to the Head Start and RCSS collaborative partnership are at the epicenter of his vision for students and families in the school district,” said Nedia Belcher, Head Start and EHS-CCP Director. “His standards for ensuring that all students receive quality education are high and should be emulated by those providing educational opportunities for children and their families."


Under Dr. Bradshaw’s leadership, the school system worked with the CSRA Head Start program to help expand services to preschool students and families by opening school system-owned facilities to more than 250 Head Start students and staff. The partnership with RCSS also supported Head Start's efforts to provide wrap-around services to more than 220 pre-kindergarten students in elementary schools.


Dr. Bradshaw will represent the state of Georgia at the Region IV Head Start Association conference in February 2025. He will join semifinalists from eight southeastern states in the selection process for the regional award.
