Gaston Superintendent appointed to Education Transformation Commission

GASTONIA – Gov. Bev Perdue appointed Gaston County School Superintendent L. Reeves McGlohon to the N.C. Education Transformation Commission last month.
He is one of 26 members appointed to oversee the use of “Race to the Top” funds to implement the governor’s “Career and College – Ready, Set, Go” initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to increase literacy and math skills by third grade, increase the number of students performing at or above grade level and increase the number of high school students taking college course, according to a news release from the district.
The commission, along with Perdue, will work toward the goal that “every child will graduate from high school and have the skills necessary to succeed in college or the work force.”
“This is a highly coveted appointment, and we are extremely fortunate to have Superintendent McGlohon representing Gaston County and the surrounding area,” said Board of Education chairman Mark Upchurch. “The governor selected Superintendent McGlohon based on his outstanding vision, leadership and commitment to public school education.”
