The Morgan County Charter School System (MCCSS) recently announced that MCHS graduate and current MCCSS parent, Jennifer Stewart, has been selected to serve on State School Superintendent Richard Woods’ 2022 Parent Advisory Council (PAC).
Stewart will be one of 30 parents from across the state chosen to meet virtually three times this year with a focus on parent and family engagement. Members of the Superintendent’s PAC will serve as advisors and will provide input on community and family engagement resources. Each PAC member will serve a two-year term and must have a child enrolled in a Title I school.
After graduating from Georgia Tech, Stewart began her career in Atlanta but returned to Morgan County to raise her family. She is currently the President of Longview Wealth Management. Stewart and her husband have supported school community events for PTO and All-Pro Dads as well as literacy projects. Additionally, Stewart served as a mentor for an MCHS student in work-based learning.
According to Interim Morgan County Primary School Principal Stacy Chapman, “Mrs. Stewart has a genuine interest in helping all people be successful. She is a hardworking mother of two and is very involved in their education and well being, but often thinks about others. Her drive for team success is amazing. She communicates well and she is a great listener. I think she will represent Morgan County well.”
When asked about being named to the PAC, Stewart shared, “As a parent of children in the Morgan County school system and as a product of the system, myself, I am incredibly honored to have the opportunity to serve on the State School Superintendent’s Advisory Council. I hope to genuinely represent our community well and work towards enhancing parent and family engagement in a meaningful way that will be beneficial for the students, families, and schools.”
