Chad Jewett was named the principal of Thanksgiving Elementary at the March Johnston County Board of Education meeting.
Jewett has an extensive background in education, serving as an administrator since 2008. He has more than 20 years of experience in education.
“I am honored to be named the Principal of Johnston County Public Schools newest elementary school,” said Jewett. “I look forward to building relationships with the students and families in the Thanksgiving community.”
The school, located off of Lynch Road in Selma, will serve families in the Thanksgiving area once construction is complete.
“We look forward to Mr. Jewett bringing his expertise to the students and staff at Thanksgiving Elementary,” said Johnston County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Eric Bracy. “Our school system is fortunate to have exemplary leadership in place, and I am confident that he will serve the families in this community well.”
The school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2021.
