After a thorough search process involving four focus groups made up of staff, faculty, and students of our school and the broader community, and a nationwide search, we are very excited to welcome Dr. Jed Davis to Bald Knob Public Schools, where his strengths in culture-building, community outreach, innovative ideas, CTE and STEM, and technology in education will complement our PLC based education approach and commitment to academic excellence for each Bald Knob student.

Dr. Davis holds a bachelor of arts degree in Mathematics and a teaching degree from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, a Master of Arts degree from the University of Arkansas-Monticello, and a Doctorate of Education degree from Texas A&M University-Texarkana.

Dr. Davis noted, “My family and I are excited about joining the Bald Knob Bulldog team and we can’t wait to start meeting people and building relationships! Throughout this interview process I learned a lot about the people and the great things that are happening in Bald Knob Public Schools, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this community and school district. I am looking forward to working alongside the school board, the faculty and staff, the students, and the people of Bald Knob. It’s a great day to be a Bulldog!”

The Bald Knob school board is pleased to have Dr. Davis as our new superintendent and look forward to many prosperous years working together.
