Ms. Gina Bedford Williams
Greetings and welcome to "Bayou 702". My parents placed the name Gina Lynn Bedford on my birth certificate, but I have been affectionately renamed over the years by my students as Ms. B or Mama B. As of December 2020, my new hubby added the last name Mrs. Williams to my list of names that I can be called, so you may see either Bedford or Williams or a combination of the two in the various documents that are used at the school.
I have been with the Johnston County School system since August of 2003. I spend 15 years teaching seventh grade at Selma Middle School, and I spent my first two years at The Lodge working with the eighth grade team. Last year. I retured to my true love which is working with seventh graders. I am really looking forward to being back where my heart truly belongs.
Here's What Is Going on At THE LODGE

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
