Board of Education Building to be named for Ray
Ernest Ray
The Board of Education voted last week to honor a long-time DeKalb County educator by naming the Board of Education Building for him. The building will be named in honor of Ernest Ray, who taught in the classroom, served as principal at Smithville Elementary School, DeKalb Middle School, and DCHS, and was elected as Superintendent of Schools. Ray was the last elected superintendent in DeKalb County in 1994 before a new state law began requiring superintendents or directors of schools to be appointed by the school board.
