Goodwin began his career in education as a science teacher and coach at Oxford High School.

He served as an assistant principal in both Talladega County Schools and Oxford City Schools and as a principal at Oxford High School.

Prior to serving as superintendent of Oxford City Schools, he served as director of operations at Talladega County Schools.

“Northwest-Shoals Community College is at the cusp of huge transitions that will impact the region and the state for decades to come,” Goodwin said. “It is such an honor to be chosen to lead the college with the support of the team who works every day to best serve our students.

“I look forward to working alongside our faculty and staff, students, parents and the greater community to maintain our Patriot pride for years to come.”

Goodwin holds a Bachelor of Science in biology and political science education from Jacksonville State University. He also earned a Master of Science in educational administration from Jacksonville State University.
