Mr. S. Dewayne Drakeford
Hello! I am proud to be working at Athens Intermediate School. For nearly 30 years I have had the opportunity to work with at-risk youth in several high schools across Alabama where I was a teacher and coach in high school basketball and football. Outside of serving as the Dean Of Students here at AIS, I enjoy my role as husband to my wonderful wife Geanine. I also love to study the Bible, travel, and visit the sick and less fortunate. I entered the field of education to make a difference in the lives of all children. I am extremely proud to have assisted many young people over the years and help them be successful. I look forward to meeting all of you at AIS.
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.
Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
