DCTC to serve on National SREB Committee

By Staff Reports

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. —Recently, the DeKalb County Career Tech Director Jonathan Phillips and DeKalb County Technology Center’s welding instructor Russ McFall were selected by the Alabama Department of Education to serve on the 2019 National SREB Planning Committee as representatives for the State of Alabama.

SREB stands for Southern Regional Education Board. It is an nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Atlanta that works with states to improve public education at every level, from early childhood to doctoral education.

Phillips and McFall will be joined by academic and career tech educational leaders from across the nation to plain SREB educational professional learning events for administrators and educators as we work together to improve education opportunities for students in both the academic and career tech areas of study.

Phillips stated, “I was truly humbled and honored to be selected to serve on the 2019 SREB Planning Committee with outstanding educational leaders of both academic and career teach from across the nation as we work as a committee to improve education for all students.”

“Making the transition from industry gives me a different perspective pertaining to education,” said McFall. “The information and advice I have received so far from the committee has been beneficial.”

DeKalb County Technology Center won the 2018 James E. Bottom Pacesetter School Award, which was the top award given by SREB last July at the 32nd Annual High Schools That Work Staff Development Conference.
