Montgomery High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Mobile in 2000. He and his wife, Sandy, have been married 24 years. The couple has three sons.

Harwell said during his tenure on the school board he would like to see more transparency relative to board matters, including the budget process and the board.s standard operating procedures.

Increasing the graduation rate and supporting the 12 Signature Academies are also high on his list of priorities. “I think these are positive for our students because they give them more opportunities,” Harwell said. While he is supportive of the academies, he said he also wants to encourage students to continue attending schools in their respective neighborhoods, areas where students and school officials live together, go to church together, go shopping together. Such connections, he said, promote stronger communities.
