Muscogee County School District

2960 Macon Road Columbus, GA 31906

For Immediate Release

Columbus, GA- The Muscogee County School District has recently received notification of the death of former teacher and Board of Education member, Dr. Mike Edmondson.

On behalf of Dr. Lewis, Superintendent of Education:

Our school district family and community is truly saddened by the passing of master teacher and Board of Education member, Dr. Mike Edmondson. We pause to reflect and celebrate his personal and professional legacy.

His life served as a testament to us with an unwavering commitment to educating generations of Muscogee County School District students. During his thirty-five year career as an educator, he was selected as the 1990 Muscogee Excellence in Education Foundation’s (MEEF) MCSD Teacher of the Year. His passion for public education extended into retirement and ultimately to his election as the Board of Education member, representing District 2, in 2018. He was highly respected by students, parents, and colleagues alike and will be greatly missed. The process to fill his role on the Board of Education will proceed as governed by Board policy.

On behalf of Pat Hugley-Green, Board of Education Chair:

On behalf of our nine-member board, we express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the friends and relatives of Dr. Michael Edmondson. His daily service and leadership on the Muscogee County Board of Education was admirable and valued. District two in Columbus, GA was always well-represented and his perspective from the classroom teacher helped shape board decisions. His passion for education and learning is evident in every endeavor he pursued.

He was a tireless advocate for teachers and their professional development, all with a focus on students and their success. His impact as an educational leader will be lasting.

The mission of the Muscogee County School District is to inspire and equip all students to achieve unlimited potential. For more information, please contact the Office of Communications at 706.748.2034 or communications@muscogee.k12.ga.us.
