He is replacing Brian Jernigan who has been named the superintendent of the Monroe County School District.

Dickerson previously served as an administrator in the Monroe County School District.

"Our graduation rate is not exactly where we want it to be," he said. "It's not terrible, but it's below the state average and we want to get it above the state average, of course. And we also want to make sure our ACT scores continue to increase."

Dickerson said he is excited to start his new job, working for the same school district he graduated from.
