March 5th, 2019

Dr. Dixon grew up in Oxford, Mississippi, and she graduated from Oxford High School, after which she attended Mississippi Valley State University. She began her professional career as an instructor at the University of Akron, before becoming an assistant principal with the Akron City Schools. She's had stints as an assistant principal and principal in several districts and in July 2014, Dr. Dixon became Superintendent of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District.

On March 4, 2019, she began her new role as the school chief of Ohio's largest school district, Columbus City Schools. In this episode, recorded in her office in University Heights just weeks before she left CHUH to start at CCS, Dr. Dixon sits down with host Shane Haggerty to discuss what drives her, motivates her and definitely what made her decide to take on the heavy challenge of leading Ohio’s biggest district.
