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. I have served as the Dean Of Students here at AIS, and currently serve as an Assistant Principal. 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.

"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."
