At the request of the Magill family, the Professional Association of Georgia Educators has created a scholarship fund in memory of Dr. Allene Magill, executive director of PAGE from July 2003 until her death in January 2018. The Dr. Allene Magill Scholarship Fund is dedicated to supporting professional learning for Georgia educators.


Dr. Magill was a tireless advocate for student engagement, educators and public education. She never stopped striving to ensure that educators had the support needed to develop professionally, and to provide the best instruction in the classroom and the highest level of leadership regardless of position. Her most passionate work at PAGE was the organization’s focus on professional learning and the development of initiatives connecting school districts in regional networks, fostering collaboration around student engagement and building relationships with students, parents and their communities.

She was twice named Georgia’s superintendent of the year and was named a F.M. Fulbright Outstanding Educator by the Georgia Association of Educational Leaders. Allene served as the president of the Georgia School Superintendents Association, as well as the Georgia Association of Educational Leaders. She also served on the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia. Allene provided leadership on numerous state committees related to education, most recently on the Education Turnaround Advisory Council, which selected the state’s new chief turnaround officer for struggling schools.
