Little Rock, Arkansas — On Friday, the Little Rock Board welcomed its new Superintendent during a welcome reception at the Clinton Presidential Center Great Hall in Little Rock.
A Florida native, Dr. Jermall Wright, comes with years of experience in education beginning in 1997 as a 5th-grade and middle school social studies teacher in Jacksonville, FL.
