We are pleased to announce that Dr. Anthony “Tony” Jackson has been selected by his peers to be the 2019-20 CCRESA Superintendent of the Year. Dr. Neil Pederesen traveled to Vance County on Monday, June 17th to present a plaque recognizing this award. Dr. Jackson has provided amazing leadership to the Vance County Schools over the past several years: garnering greater community support, merging two high schools and two middle schools, developing a new brand — “Vance County Schools Proud” — and vision for the district, and enhancing student performance and graduation rates. He also has been a leader at the state level, serving on the NCSSA Advisory Board as one of the CCRESA’s representatives. We believe that Dr. Jackson will be a strong contender for our State Superintendent of the Year next fall.
