Campus Safety magazine has named Georgetown County School District Director of Safety and Risk Management Alan Walters as this year’s national K-12 Director of the Year.
Walters was recognized on July 13 at Campus Safety Conference East, which took place in Philadelphia. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Director of the Year program, the event also honored past winners.
“I am proud to represent Georgetown County School District and bring home this national award for K-12 Campus Safety Director of the Year,” Walters said.
Judges were impressed with Walters’ rewriting of his district’s emergency operations plan and arranging for the evacuations, shelters and recovery sites in response to Hurricane Matthew. He also supervised $1.5 million in renovations at 20 locations. Upgrades included cameras, access control, secured walkways and bullet-resistant doors and glass.
Campus Safety would like to thank this year’s program judges for taking time out of their busy schedules to evaluate the entries: Campus Safety Web Editor Amy Brennan; University of Southern Mississippi Director of Sports Security Lou Marciani; Safeguard Risk Solutions CEO and President Gary Sigrist Jr.; and Hospital Security Consultant Tom Smith.
