I truly appreciate the opportunity to serve as the Daleville City Schools Superintendent. I am very proud of the many great things that our system has accomplished during my superintendency. We have experianced the incredible hurdle of COVID for most of my tenure and have faced head-on with resilience the many challanged that the pandemic brought. We have improved academics, refreshed the facilities, renovated and opened the middle school, and increased the fund balance three fold. It has been my great pleasure to be a loyal Warhawk.

Dr. Stamps also thanked her loyal staff, and board, as well as supporting families who have stood beside her throughout her years as an education leader.

Without everyone working together, we could not have created schools with a rich learning environment and made our schools enjoyable places for students to learn and teachers to work. With a committed team pulling together, we could not have witnessed the abundent improvement we have seen over the past few years.

We visited some exemplary programs across the state before we started renovating and made a decision at what we wanted for our middle school students and we’re so pleased.
