Public education in Georgia lost one of its greatest champions on January 27, 2018, with the passing of Dr. Allene Magill. Allene was the Executive Director of PAGE and was president of GAEL 1999-2000. She did it all and the best description I have heard of her is, “She was something else.” She was a strong woman filled with both passion and compassion. She was the beautiful, articulate face of public education in Georgia and we are all devastated at her passing. She is no longer with us physically but her dynamic, powerful spirit will be with us forever. Our deepest sympathy goes to her family.
