Another loss for Mack: its dynamic and popular college counselor.
Arthur Jackson, a Mack alumnus and graduate of UC Berkeley, will leave for graduate school next year.
His departure is part of a major exodus from Mack over two years: first principal Yetunde Reeves and three teachers, now the closure of the Law Academy and “consolidation” of Ina Bendich and Craig Gordon, pink slips for teachers and the departure of Jackson.
“My goal is to hire a better person than me as my replacement,” he said.
Jackson plans to attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where he will pursue a masters in public policy and management.
