Donna Gillum is the Principal at Stewart County Middle School in Stewart County. She was nominated by her librarian Lee Ann Barrow.
Lee Ann had this to say, “ I nominated her for her dedication to the teachers, students and our library program. These are tough times for educators, but we have endured and pressed on. We appreciate the passion and resilience in her pursuit to move this school forward. Despite the challenges, she champions for our students and their families. For example, when we closed the doors across in 2019-2020, Mrs. Gillum rallied to make books conveniently available for students with a drive-by library exchange program. Although we have reinvented our schools over and over through these tough times, she has modeled grace under extreme pressure and adversity. She not only cultivates greatness in our school, but in our community. She has been a lifetime friend of mine growing up in the hills of Indian Mound and is the same person to all. She is well deserving of this award.”
