Leading and Living in Crisis
Hustle in Heels - LADIES LEAD NWA is an initiative of the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce dedicated to empowering, educating, and connecting women with a modern approach to professional and business development.

The pandemic and politics make it a difficult time to lead an organization but now it’s more important than ever to lead well.

 

Dr. Debbie Jones discusses the principles that guide her through times of crisis. Questions, thoughts, and discussion encouraged as one principle holds true - we are in this together.

About the Speaker | Dr. Debbie Jones

Dr. Debbie Jones is the superintendent of Bentonville Schools. She has more than 25 years of educator experience having previously served as Assistant Commissioner for Learning Services at the Arkansas Department of Education. Dr. Jones held the position of assistant superintendent for the Bryant School District for seven years following her principalship at Bryant High School. She worked as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and secondary director in Pulaski County Special School District.

Her academic career has led her to the highest credentials attainable for an educator. Dr. Jones received a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Arkansas, a Master of Arts in Secondary Administration from the University of Central Arkansas and a Doctorate of Education from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. 

She served on the Northwest Arkansas American Heart Association Board of Directors and publicly took a stand against vaping after seeing too many students, primarily high school students, become addicted. Earlier this year, she authored legislative language to ensure superintendents across the state have access to student criminal records. Her work represents a tremendous change in policy, allowing school principals the necessary knowledge to better protect students in the public school system. In its last session, the bill was passed into law by the Arkansas State Legislature.

She is CEO to more than 1,200 employees and 18,000 students who proudly call Bentonville Schools home. Dr. Jones and her husband, Dale Jones, are parents to five children and enjoy traveling, running, reading and quite possibly the south’s greatest tradition after sweet tea ...high school football.
