"Suzy Berryman has extensive experience in school finance, both in a school system and at the
state level,” said Dr. Shane Barnette, Cullman County School Superintendent. “As Chief School
Financial Officer of Cullman County Schools, she will be managing the finances of one of the
largest school systems in the state. Our system is fiscally strong, and I am excited that Mrs.

success and help us continue to provide the best educational experience possible."

“I would like to thank the board and Dr. Barnette for this opportunity,” said Suzy Berryman.
