Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Ankara McKinney Thomas
I am so excited to be a part of the CTLA family! I am a graduate of Saint Augustine's University and NCA&T State University. I am married with a 5 year old son. Before I became a teacher I was a TRIO counselor at Saint Augustine's University for 6 years. I enjoyed working with students so much I decided to get a full time teaching position, first in Wake County now I am back home in Johnston County. I enjoy cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family. I look forward to working with all of you this school year!

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
