Outgoing Gwinnett Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks reflects on tenure after last regular school board meeting

J. Alvin Wilbanks has participated in a staggering number of school board meetings in his 25-year career as Gwinnett County Public Schools superintendent.

The number adds up — by Wilbanks’ estimate — to 307 monthly meetings.

But, Thursday was a milestone for Wilbanks, who will turn 79 and leave his position at the end of this month. It was his last regularly scheduled board meeting as superintendent.
