Following a called Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, Heather Hunt has been named as the lead nurse for Gordon County Schools. As such, Mrs. Hunt will oversee the nursing program for the district.
Mrs. Hunt is an alumnus of Gordon Central High School and a summa cum laude graduate of Kennesaw State University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She has been a registered nurse for over 24 years and spent much of her career in the Emergency Department at the former Gordon Hospital. During the past four years, she has worked with Gordon County Schools and has served in several capacities in addition to her role as school nurse. She is a First Responder Team Leader, CPR Instructor, Chattahoochee Technical College CNA Instructor, and volunteer coach for the Gordon Central track team. Most recently, she was presented with a Lifesaver Award from Dr. Kimberly Fraker, Gordon County Superintendent, for her efforts in managing a life-threatening student emergency on the GC campus.
Mike Evelti, Executive Director of Student Services, is excited to have Mrs. Hunt step into her new role. “Mrs. Hunt has been a tremendous asset to the nursing program as the school nurse at Gordon Central High School, and I am confident that she will do well leading the program throughout the district.”
