Dr. Bill Cleveland is the Superintendent of the Homewood City School system and he has been in this role since 2008. But more importantly, Bill is a homegrown student and was a Shades Cahaba student before moving on to the middle school and high school where he graduated in the class of 1985. It’s always humbling to realize that the superintendent of your children’s school graduated with your little brother.

We talk about the Homewood school system today, what it is like coming back and leading a school system where they know all your history and what it was like when Bill attended Shades Cahaba. We also take a look at what was going on at Shades Cahaba during the 1930s.
