Pascagoula-Gautier School District names new superintendent

The Pascagoula Gautier School District Board of Trustees announced this morning that Billy Ellzey will be the next superintendent of the Pascagoula-Gautier School District.

Ellzey has served as superintendent of Kosciusko School District since 2017. During his tenure, he built a reputation as a strong communicator with both internal and external stakeholders, the board said in announcing the decision. He has more than 22 years of experience in education, starting his career as a classroom teacher and coach.

The Board began its search for a superintended to succeed Dr. Wayne Rodolfich, who will retire effective June 30 after 17 years as superintendent. Ellzey’s track record for school performance improvement impressed the Board and ultimately put him at the top.

Ellzey will remain a board member for the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents, as well as remaining an active Rotarian. “I am excited to work with the staff, parents, and community stakeholders in Pascagoula and Gautier to build upon the traditions already in place for a bright future.  Together, we will take our district to the next level,” Ellzey said.
