he Dougherty County Board of Education voted Wednesday to name Angie Gardner as the first principal of the Commodore Conyers College & Career Academy.
Gardner, who ended the school year as the assistant principal at Dougherty Comprehensive High School, was the selection committee's unanimous number one pick, Superintendent Dr. David Mosely told board members Wednesday.
Gardner will oversee the educational process at the CCCCA when it opens its doors in January. The CCCCA will serve as the epicenter of the system's Move-On-When-Ready Program, or MOWR, allowing students to pursue technical certificates or college degrees while still in high school. The CCCCA will also allow students to seek career-ready skills and have access to internships and externships as they move down the path towards entering the workforce.
Gardner joins newly-hired CEO Chris Hatcher as the leadership team for the college and career academy.
