In a special board meeting of the Sallisaw Board of Education held today, May 25, the board voted to employ Jeremy Jackson as the new superintendent of Sallisaw Public School. Jackson will replace Scott Farmer who recently resigned to take a new position as superintendent at Fort Gibson schools.
Jackson has served as principal at Warner High School for the past six years. In 2016 he was named the Oklahoma High School Principal of the Year by the Oklahoma Association of Secondary School Principals.
"I'm so excited to be here in Sallisaw. I started out my career in Gore so I've been around Sequoyah County before and coached and was able to move to administration through Midway schools and the last six years at Warner High School.
"I'm very excited about the opportunities here in Sallisaw. Mr. Farmer's done a fantastic job with Sallisaw Public Schools with the staff he has put together. I just hope to continue on with his legacy and see what all we can accomplish as a staff and as a team," stated Jackson.
The vote to hire Jackson was 3-0 with Frankie Sullivan III, Justin McGrew and Amanda Hatcher all voting in favor. Mike Daffin and Bobby Qualls were not present.
Scott Farmer's resignation is effective June 30.
