Yesterday, December 8th was declared Julie Rhame Day by #theCityOfDecatur ! Julie, thank you for your 12 years of exceptional and many time thankless service on the school board. The number 1 reason we moved here was for the schools. When you were elected to the board, enrollment was on a downward trend, schools were closing and the racial divide amongst the community and school system was noticeable and tense. Thanks impart to you, the other board members, superintendent, staff, admin, teachers and community, the city schools of Decatur are now busting at the seams, we are opening new schools and being recognized nationally!!! I have some big shoes to fill. Thank you for your support, advice and for having faith in me!!!
