Mississippi Education Leader Elected to National Board

Category: Parent Points

The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) elected Dr. John Kelly, member and former chairman of the Mississippi State Board of Education, to serve as chair-elect of the organization in 2017 and chair in 2018. Kelly will begin his term as chair-elect in January 2017 and then serve as chair of the association’s board in 2018.

“Being elected chairman-elect of NASBE is a tremendous opportunity for both Mississippi and me. Over the last two years, our state education system has seen the beginning of a real reform in our education system. Being in a leadership role at NASBE will give me a national platform to talk about that reform in a manner where it might benefit other states around the country,” Kelly said.

The National Association of State Boards of Education represents America’s state and territorial boards of education. Its principal objectives are to strengthen state leadership in education policymaking, advocate equality of access to educational opportunity, promote excellence in the education of all students, and ensure responsible lay governance of education.
