Superintendent of Ben Hill County Schools

Dr. J. Shawn Haralson


Ben Hill Schools have long been known for their rich tradition in academics, athletics, and extra-curricular programs. The 2015-16 school year was ear marked with outstanding accomplishments from both our ladies’ and men’s athletic and extra-curricular programs throughout the State. Reaching for Excellence, our motto, fits this system just perfect !  I hope you will find that the Ben Hill Community and their outstanding positive support for our Purple Hurricanes is like no other in the State of Georgia. We are extremely thankful and appreciative for the support shown from business, parents, boosters, and especially our students! GO CANES!!
