SUPERINTENDENT SWORN IN

Dr. Pascal Mubenga raises his hand to take the oath of office administered by District Court Judge John Davis (left) last Friday morning at the Franklin County School District's Riverside campus. Dr. Mubenga had been hired earlier in the week as superintendent of county schools and was accompanied by his wife Chantal (right) and daughter Sarah at the swearing-in ceremony. Dr. Mubenga, who a decade ago was assistant principal at Franklinton High School from 2005 to 2007, said that returning as superintendent is "a lifetime opportunity to continue moving the district forward." He said he plans to build strong relationships with district leadership, school staff and the community. "I have a reputation as a leader who knows how to rally the troops towards a common vision. Together, with our dedicated staff, deserving students, spirited parents and supportive board of education, we will maintain an unwavering focus on building a solid foundation of quality instruction," he said. Dr. Mubenga spent the last four years working as a district transformation coach, school transformation team lead and school transformation coach for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI). Prior to his time at NCDPI, he served as principal of Jones Senior High School, in Jones County. As a school in transformation, Dr. Mubenga is credited with changing the culture and climate of Jones High School which saw dramatic gains in student achievement during his three-year tenure. Dr. Mubenga fills the vacancy left to Dr. Lisa Martin who resigned this summer after about 18 months at the helm. The new superintendent, whose first day was fully filled with meetings, said he looks forward to "hitting the ground running" and attending various athletic events so he can meet parents and community members.
