Jamie Golliver named MCS Security and Emergency Management Coordinator

MADISON – At its June 14 meeting, Madison Board of Education confirmed Jamie Golliver as Security and Emergency Management Coordinator for Madison City Schools.

By accepting the new position, Golliver fills the open slot left from the retirement of Dr. David West, who has accepted a job in Fayetteville, Tenn.

“I am excited to continue to serve Madison City Schools in my new role as Coordinator of Security & Emergency Management for the district,” Golliver said. “These areas have always been top priorities for me as an educator, and I look forward to working with our MCS administrators, school resource officers, teachers, staff and stakeholders to collaboratively and proactively ensure their enhancement and prioritization.”

Duties and responsibilities for this position include evaluating, planning, coordinating and implementing security and emergency management measures throughout the district. In addition, Golliver will partner with agencies and officials in support of those measures.

“My career in education has spanned a total of 28 years, all in Madison,” Golliver said. For 16 years, he taught at Bob Jones High School and Liberty Middle School. Then at Liberty, he served as Assistant Principal for six years. That experience led to his work as Principal at Madison Elementary School for the past six years.

Golliver graduated from the University of North Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in secondary education in 1990. He received a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2012.

While working at Madison Elementary, Golliver said he believed “that the foundation of our school’s success is built upon positive relationships and clear, honest and transparent communication.” He strived to work with students, parents, faculty, staff and community partners to confirm that all students have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

His wife Diana Golliver teaches second grade at Midtown Elementary School. The Gollivers are parents of two adult daughters, Jocelyn and Anna Belle.

Jocelyn, a Registered Nurse, works at Shoals Hospital; her husband, Seth, teaches eighth-grade math at Florence Middle School. Jocelyn and Seth are parents of a daughter, Annie-Jo, and a son, Beckham.

Anna Belle teaches seventh-grade social science at Deshler Middle School in Tuscumbia; her husband, Colton, co-owns a small business.
