Belmont Alumnus Serves as Superintendent of Hamilton County Schools

Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools, is a master’s alumnus of Belmont University. He graduated in 2006 with a Master of Arts in Teaching.

He recently shared his perspective on leadership and how community members can support students and the future workforce in a spotlight in the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce’s Business Trend publication.

According to the spotlight, Johnson has served as a teacher, school administrator, director of secondary schools, chief academic officer and now as the superintendent.

It goes on to say, “He has made tremendous strides to improve Hamilton County Schools. In less than two years, he started the Opportunity Zone to address rapid school improvement in 12 of the district’s low performing schools.”

He launched Future Ready Institutes in Hamilton County high schools to make learning more meaningful for today’s teens and provide future-ready graduates who are prepared for success after graduation. The program was so successful in the first year that it was awarded the Urban League of Chattanooga’s Community Impact Award.
