Jackie Ford, who had been interim schools chief in New Albany since May, has been named schools superintendent. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports Ford succeeds Charles Garrett, who retired from the district to take a position with the Wellspring Center for Professional Futures. Before that, Ford had been New Albany’s assistant superintendent for seven years.
The 61-year-old Ford has been an educator for 39 years. He spent 19 years as a classroom teacher at Pine Grove High School in Tippah County before working 13 years as vocational/career and technical director in New Albany and then becoming assistant superintendent.
