Rosemary Hodges, Ed. D came to the Alabama School of Cyber Technology & Engineering after twenty years of service to Athens State University. At Athens State University she developed unique academic partnerships with P-12 school systems and institutions of higher education. She also served as the Interim Dean of the College of Education, Coordinator of Assessment and Accreditation, and rose to the rank of Professor during her tenure.

She currently serves as an onsite/offsite chairperson for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and has served as a Graduate adjunct for the AAMU in Educational Leadership.
Embracing the core values of integrity, accountability, and dependability, Hodges applies those values and her skills outside of academia through service on various Boards including the Alabama Educators Credit Union, Holt Street Academy of Montgomery, AL. and as a mentor to select local school administrators and novice teachers.
