Dyer gets superintendent job in East Tennessee


Collierville Schools Chief of Staff Russell Dyer will become superintendent of schools in Cleveland, Tennessee, just northeast of Chattanooga.

Dyer was selected by the Cleveland Board of Education on May 26 over Knox County Assistant Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Alves.

They were the final two candidates from 26 applicants in the director search, which began three months ago.

Once a contract agreement is reached, Dyer will take over the school system at the start of the new school year.

Dyer, 41, has been a high school principal, middle school principal, human resource specialist, assistant principal and classroom teacher in his 20 years in education.

According to the Cleveland Daily Banner, in the cover letter on his application, Dyer expressed the opinion it was a great opportunity to serve as an adviser and confidant to Collierville Schools Superintendent John Aiken.
