EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


Yesterday, Jack Hoke, the executive director of the NC School Superintendents’ Association (NCSSA), was awarded the 2023 Champion for Children Award during the NC Association of School Administrators’ (NCASA) 2023 Conference on Educational Leadership.

A superintendent told me Hoke was nominated by Dr. Rob Jackson, with letters of support from 48 superintendents and three RESAS representing numerous other superintendents across the state.

“Jack Hoke is a hero to every local superintendent in North Carolina that he mentors,” said NCASA Executive Director Katherine Joyce in this press release. “The support he provides these district leaders and his advocacy at the state level on their behalf make him a true ‘Champion for Children’ that NCASA is proud to honor.”
