Earlier this month, WHEF welcomed new Jackson Public School District Superintendent Dr. Errick Greene to Mississippi. Dr. Greene took the helm of the JPS system on October 1. JPS is the second largest district in Mississippi, serving 24,000 students in 54 schools.
During the meeting, we shared an overview of the mission, vision, and strategic areas of focus for WHEF. We provided Dr. Greene with a more in-depth look at the work of Get2College, with a specific focus on our center services, professional development opportunities for educators, Pilot School program, and work in the area of FAFSA completion. We also discussed the history of our Get2College work within the JPS system.
