My name is Jeff Holloway. I am originally from Monticello, Ga. I have a large extended family that has lived there for six generations. I have two wonderful daughters and two beautiful granddaughters. My hobbies include traveling, doing anything outdoors, and working on the family hunting land.
I received my Bachelors degree in History from the University of South Carolina. In addition, I earned my M.A.T and Specialist in Leadership degrees from Georgia College & State University. I have taught at the middle and high school levels and I have served as an administrator for the past four years.
I am excited about joining the Morgan County Middle School team. I look forward to meeting and working with the students, parents, and staff to make this year a successful and productive year for everyone.
Allison Echols-Woodard grew up in Carlton, Georgia located in Madison County. She was a
student-athlete competing at the state level in both basketball and track. Allison graduated with
honors and received a full athletic scholarship to the Georgia Institute of Technology. During
her time at Georgia Tech, Allison was the Co-Captain of the Lady Jackets Basketball team where
the team won the Women’s National Invitational Tournament (first championship in Georgia
Tech Women’s Basketball history). She graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor’s Degree
in Science for Business Management.
After graduation, Allison began her career working in Hospitality, Engineering, and
Telecommunications industries. She received a Master’s Degree in Business Administration
while working in the corporate arena. She entered Education in 2007, where she worked at
Alcovy High School in Covington, Georgia. She served as a Business Teacher, an FBLA
advisor, and a Basketball Coach. She also taught Computer Science and Marketing courses. In
2011, Allison opened the Marketing program at The Newton College and Career Academy. This
allowed her to teach marketing and assist in opening a school-based enterprise. During this time,
Allison received her Doctorate in Education in Organizational Leadership. She later became an
Assistant Principal at Newton College and Career Academy where she served for three years.
Allison’s accomplishments also include being nominated for CTAE AP of the Year through
GACTE and completing her Yellow Belt with Lean Six Sigma. This allows her to collaborate
with a team to improve district-level performances and eliminate wasteful processes. In 2016,
she took the lead of a district initiative called Habitudes Leadership which enhances visual
learners with images and relatable stories that will provide a foundation to guide them through
life challenges and opportunities.
Allison has been blessed with two children, Autumn and Alec Woodard. Her children are the joy
of her life and she participates in all activities that they are involved in. Autumn was part of the
MCHS 2017 graduating class and Alec will be graduating with the Class of 2019. Both her
children are student-athletes and she takes pride in all of their endeavors. You may frequently
hear her yell, “Let’s Get It” at the sporting events!
Dr. Allison Woodard’s other unspoken roles are an advocate for students, partner of the

Allison is looking forward to serving. She is thrilled and honored to be a part of the Morgan
County Middle School community, and is excited more than ever to be part of ‘One Morgan’.
