    The Greene County Board of Education named Dr. Chris Houston Superintendent of Greene County Schools on June 13, 2016. Dr. Houston had served as the school district’s Interim Superintendent since January 2016.


    Prior to joining Greene County Schools, he served as Sheriff of Greene County for the nearly two decades. He began his career in law enforcement in 1989 with the University of Georgia Police Department before moving to the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office in 1991 after graduating from the University of Georgia. While in Oconee County, he helped start the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program, which he taught for four years to all Oconee County fifth grade students.  

    In 1994, Dr. Houston and his wife Missy moved to Greene County. Two years later, he was elected Sheriff of Greene County, defeating the two previous incumbents with 57 percent of the vote. Dr. Houston went on to win all five elections for the office. After a 27-year career in law enforcement, Dr. Houston will retire on January 20 to become the Interim Superintendent of GCSS.    

    Dr. Houston holds a Ph.D. from Northcentral University in Business Administration, a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Brenau University, a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Columbus State University, a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Georgia and an Associate’s Degree from Darton College. Dr. Houston has also completed Georgia’s Command College, a 320-hour curriculum focused on Justice Administration provided by the Association of Chiefs of Police and Columbus State University.   

    He has also served as an adjunct instructor for Athens Technical College, Columbus State University and Tennessee State University. He holds an instructor certification from the Georgia Peace Officer’s Standards and Training Council and has served as a guest trainer for the Northeast Georgia Police Academy, Georgia Public Safety Training Center and the Georgia Sheriff’s Association.
