ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - It's a bittersweet day in the Jennings School District today as they say goodbye to the woman who turned things around. She led the charge to balance the budget after a 2-million dollar deficit, restored accreditation to the district and helped the graduation rate soar. She has been recognized by national leaders, like Hillary Clinton for her accomplishments in education.
Today is the last day on the job for Jennings Superintendant Dr. Tiffany Anderson, who is leaving to become the first African American woman to become superintendant in the Topeka School District in Kansas.
In 2012, she saw the Jennings School District as full of possibility and hope. During her time here, she rose the graduation rate to 93% and built a strong community around the school. She is confident that the teachers will continue to work hard and she has no doubt Jennings can sustain itself.
We wish her luck on her next adventure!
