NEHS would like to welcome Jessica McCole to her new role as Program Coordinator at the organization. In her new role, Jessica will be supporting NEHS communications on a variety of platforms and coordinating NEHS scholarships, awards, and grants programs.
Jessica has spent her career in education, teaching (mostly) high school English for fifteen years. Her love for English began when she met Ernest Gaines at the Sigma Tau Delta convention when she was fourteen years old. Because of that encounter, she was inspired to join Sigma Kappa Delta and Sigma Tau Delta when she went to college. She chartered a chapter of National English Honor Society in 2018 and has been a member of the NEHS Advisory Council for the past four years. She earned an AA from Northeast Alabama Community College and holds a BA from the University of Montevallo. In her free time, Jessica enjoys listening to audiobooks, rewatching comfort-comedies with her husband, singing in the car with her two daughters, and snuggling with her two Boston Terriers.
Welcome, Jessica! We’re happy that you’re here!
