New Albany Schools Name Superintendent

Jackie Ford

NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WCBI) – A familiar face will lead the New Albany School District. 61-year-old Jackie Ford was named superintendent this week after serving as interim since May. The former assistant superintendent replaces Charles Garrett, who retired to take a leadership position with the Wellspring Center for Professional Futures. Ford told school board members the district will soon make upgrades to its facilities and infrastructure, while aiming to be ranked as a “Star District.”
