Duval County Public Schools and the greater Jacksonville community welcomed new Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene at a special reception held July 17 at the University of North Florida’s Adam W. Herbert University Center.
Greene had the opportunity to meet more than 250 community members and leaders, as well as discuss her initial thoughts on the district. Prior to her work in Duval, Greene was the superintendent of the School District of Manatee County.
Green gave a rousing speech, asking the community if she could draft them to #TeamDuval. She said it will take the community working together to elevate the children.
Also at the event, School Board Chair Paula Wright thanked former superintendent Dr. Patricia Willis for providing calm and steady leadership over the past school year in which she served in an interim basis.
