Kimber L. Halliburton has been selected by the Madison County Board of Education as the next Superintendent of Madison County Schools.

“Madison County Schools is pleased to welcome Mrs. Kimber Halliburton as our new superintendent,” said Board President Philip Huskey, “Mrs. Halliburton impressed the board with her vision for the district.

Halliburton brings nearly three decades of experience in education. She currently serves as director and superintendent of schools in Washington County, Tenn.

“I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to serve the students and families of Madison County,” Halliburton said. “As I toured schools on the day of my interview, the board’s ‘Mark of Excellence’ was evident in every school. Dr. McGehee has accomplished much for me to build upon. I am eager to begin establishing relationships and hit the ground running with the work ahead to continue the forward progress of student outcomes and achievement in Madison County.”


Halliburton is a lifelong learner currently pursuing her doctorate in leadership and professional effectiveness from Trevecca Nazarene University.

As an administrator, she has garnered numerous accolades, including being named the Tennessee Education Association’s Distinguished Administrator of the Year in 2014-2015, representing Middle Tennessee. Halliburton served as a state trainer for the Tennessee Department of Education and a district trainer on topics ranging from leadership to evaluation.

“The Madison County Board of Education has selected a very qualified candidate for the job of Superintendent. I have full faith that Mrs. Halliburton will continue the important work of leading our students, teachers, and administrators and ensure that Madison County Schools carries on as the Mark of Excellence in education,” said current Madison County Schools Superintendent Dr. Ronnie L.
