Meet Dr. Lewis Brooks

Dear Citizens of Shelby County:

I am excited to announce my candidacy for the Office of Superintendent of Shelby County Schools. As the current Assistant Superintendent of Administration and Pupil Services, I am uniquely qualified to lead this dynamic school district and to further meet the needs of our diverse community.


I decided to run for the position of Superintendent of Shelby County Schools because, after many years of working in the district, I know the parents, educators and staff here have such a high level of commitment to excellence in education for the students we serve. I love that about this district and I share in that same commitment.

I have served in many positions over my 27-year career including teacher, principal, elementary district coordinator, middle school district coordinator, and for the last 6 years as the Assistant Superintendent of Administration.

My numerous experiences have prepared me for this most important role. I have not only been an educator, but I have also served in our community. I am proud of my service on several boards including the YMCA, Kings Home, the D.A.Y. Program and as the current Vice President of Awards and Recognition for the University of Montevallo National Alumni Board.  I have also volunteered to coach numerous youth sports teams throughout our community.

In each of these roles, I have served with integrity, leadership and a spirit of service-always putting children first. As your next superintendent, I will do the same. Thank you for your support and for your commitment to our great county and school district.


"Give more to the world than you take away."
