Dr. Patterson selected as

Superintendent

of Asheville City Schools

The Board of Education for Asheville City Schools elected Dr. Denise Patterson as the district’s new Superintendent during a specially called meeting on Thursday, June 1, 2017.

As the current Assistant Superintendent for Hickory Public Schools, Dr. Patterson has been notably instrumental in leading Hickory Public Schools through the accreditation process, as well as numerous educational opportunities for HPS employees and academic development for students.

From the annual Curriculum Conference and implementing the Read to Achieve program… to initiating the successful summer school sessions and new teacher training, Dr. Patterson’s leadership and organizational skills have been extraordinary. Her contributions to Hickory Public Schools have helped to guide the district to advancement in both district scores and the graduation rate.

According to the Superintendent of Hickory Public Schools, Dr. Robbie Adell, Dr. Patterson’s contributions have enhanced the district’s professional standards of excellence.

Dr. Patterson has not only been my colleague, but she has become a good friend,” said Adell.  “She has worked extremely hard for the children of Hickory Public Schools and is deserving of the honor to be the Superintendent of Asheville City Schools.

“Dr. Patterson’s resignation is a cruel reminder that all good things in life must come to an end. She may have stopped being a colleague, but she will always remain my friend,” said Adell.

Dr. Patterson’s first official day serving as the Superintendent of Asheville City Schools will be effective July 1, 2017.

We wish Dr. Denise Patterson the very best at Asheville City Schools!
