Sheila Phillips, Superintendent


Message from the Superintendent






The outpouring of kindness and encouragement shown to me upon my recent appointment as superintendent has been overwhelming and humbling. I know what this means to our community and the importance of the role I am beginning to fulfill: because of that, I consider it a blessing even to be considered for this position of leadership.

I am thankful for our Board of Education, who brought integrity to the selection process and sought out the very best candidates. They did a stellar job of determining our beliefs as a school system -- beliefs which motivate me to roll up my sleeves and be actively involved in our work. I am also thankful for the support of Superintendent, Dr. Jamie Blair. Seeing his level of commitment to this system made me recognize how much I also care about the work we do and the learning outcomes for our children.

Finally, I would not be here if it were not for the support and encouragement of our faculty, our board members, and you, the Vestavia Hills community. As your superintendent, I will strive to ensure that our school system continues on the path of excellence, meets the needs of our students, and inspires the development of every child's fullest potential.
