Dedicated to our communities
Wayne Reynolds is proud to have served District 8 on the Alabama State Board of Education since 2019.
Wayne holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia where he specialized in career and technical education, implementing one of the early high school student internship programs in Muskogee County, Georgia. He then went on to complete his Doctorate in Education from Auburn University.
With over 30 years in public education, first as a classroom teacher and eventually serving for over 12 years as a public school superintendent, Wayne understands education. After retirement, he served on the state curriculum development committee and textbook review committee.
After his first retirement from education, Wayne decided he wanted to continue serving his community. In 1996, he began operating Quad County Child Nutrition Program, a program to monitor in-home child nutrition programs for the State Department of Education. He also has been a registered nurse since 2003.
Wayne lives in in Athens, Ala., with his wife, Carol. Wayne and Carol have two children and two grandchildren. His son, Wesley, served in the Air Force and now practices medicine, and his daughter, Paige, works in weapons research for the U.S. Army.
