Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation’s new Superintendent, Dr. Jack Parker, started his mission of becoming familiar with the district by riding a bus with elementary students on his first day. Within his first week, he toured each of Mt. Vernon’s five schools and the preschool. Within the next six months, Dr. Parker plans to engage with staff and students at each of the schools, learn about Mt. Vernon, and connect with the community.
Dr. Parker spent his first two days as Superintendent touring and getting to know staff and students at each of the five schools, as well as the Mini-Marauder Preschool. He met several staff members in each building and looks forward to getting to know each schools’ programs as well. He met with the bus drivers collectively, sharing that they are an integral part of the Mt. Vernon team.
Dr. Parker plans to meet with several core groups in the community and has already begun to demonstrate his leadership as a team player and collaborator within the greater community. In his first week, he spoke to the Greenfield Chamber of Commerce and also moderated a Legislative Breakfast held at Mt. Vernon with Speaker Bosma, Senator Crider and Representative Cherry.
Superintendent Dr. Parker is a visionary leader who hopes to foster and lead the growth within the Mt. Vernon community. He has already begun to demonstrate his collaborative style and genuine character throughout the district. Bright roads are ahead!
