At Monday night’s Board of Trustees meeting, Mr. Johnny Jackson was appointed to fill the position of outgoing Board member David Sereque, who recently moved out of the district. The Board unanimously approved Mr. Jackson’s appointment.
Mr. Jackson comes to Spartanburg Two with a background in education and the private sector.
Mr. Jackson taught math in District 2 for several years after graduating college and he recently retired as Senior Pastor of White Hall Independent Methodist Church in Inman. Currently, he is the general manager of the Liberty-Chesnee-Fingerville Water District.
Mr. Jackson’s wife Joetta was also an educator. She retired from District 2 after teaching elementary school for more than 30 years.
“I have a genuine interest in the students, faculty and families of District 2 and in continuing to improve our District,” Jackson said after his appointment.
At the conclusion of Monday’s Board meeting, Mr. Sereque was recognized by superintendent Dr. Scott Mercer for his more than five years of service to the Spartanburg Two community. Mr. Sereque received a long round of applause from fellow Board members and those in attendance.
Mr. Jackson will be sworn into his new position at the next Board meeting on May 9.
