A check was presented to Dr. Jones that will be given to either a student at the school from which he graduated, or at a school in his district. He was also presented with a blue blazer, traditionally given to the winner.
In 2018 He was named Superintendent of the Year for the state of Georgia. Regarding his December win, Jones said: "We got to this point because we were ready. I think people are trying to make it be the very best it can be. We're not where we need to be. We still have some mindsets to change, but we're getting there." He says seeing how the district has improved in three years was a victory in itself. "I didn't know I was going to win, but I felt like we had already won just because of the progress we had made."
