The Savannah Chatham County Public School System is mourning the loss of one of their own today.
SCCPSS staff learned Wednesday afternoon of the passing of longtime Spencer Elementary School Principal Andrea Williams, according to a news release.
SCCPSS Superintendent Dr. Ann Levett says of Mrs. Williams, “Her passion for education and her students showed in the energy and enthusiasm she brought to her school each day. That passion and caring is what will be remembered by her school family and throughout this community. We have lost a valued educator who meant so much to so many. Principal Williams will be greatly missed.”
Savannah-Chatham Schools has released no additional details on her death.
Principal Williams was a proud graduate of Savannah High School and Savannah State University. She started her career in education in 1977 and eventually was hired with SCCPSS in 1983.
She taught at Isle of hope and Largo-Tibet before being promoted to Assistant Principal of Pooler Elementary.
Williams became Principal of Garden City Elementary in 2001 and was transferred to Spencer just over ten years ago in July of 2007, according to the district.
School social workers and grief counselors will be on site at the school for any student, staff or family member who may need additional support or counseling.
