Originally from Talladega, Ala., Dr. Anthony Lewis and his wife, Tiffany, are the proud parents of six children: Jasmine, Akirah, Anthony II, Sierra, Kailey, and Braxton. Dr. Anthony Lewis began his career in public education as a special education teacher at Jefferson Davis High School (2002-2006), and in educational leadership, as an assistant principal, and then principal, of E. D. Nixon Elementary School (2006-2011). While at E. D. Nixon, discipline decreased by more than 50%, daily student attendance increased, and the school became an Alabama Torchbearer School during the 2007-2008 school year - one of only nine in the state, and again during the 2010-2011 school year – one of only eleven in the state. The school was ranked number 18 out of 706 schools in the state of Alabama, and was recognized as a 90/90/90 School (90% students of low socio-economic status, 90% students of color, and 90% students scoring highly on achievement tests). The Kansas City, Missouri school district recruited Lewis to serve as principal of Benjamin Banneker Elementary School (2011-2012), director of elementary education (2012-2016), and assistant superintendent of schools (2016-present). In his present position, Lewis provides leadership and support to principals, schools, and programs; oversees school planning, implementation, coordination and evaluation of schools; and ensures that program activities comply with district policies, and that Missouri statutes align to the district’s strategic plan. Lewis earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in special education at Alabama State University in Montgomery and a doctorate in educational leadership and policy from the University of Missouri in Columbia. The School Superintendents Association (AASA) selected him for its Superintendents Academy, recognized as one of the premier programs in the country. He has served as an advisory board member of the National Principals Academy, Junior Achievement of Greater Kansas City, and Kansas City Chief Derrick Johnson’s Defend the Dream Foundation; a certified data teams trainer with Doug Reeves’ Leadership and Learning Center, and certified facilitator of the National Institute for School Leadership. Lewis is a member of Phi Delta Kappa (Kappan of the Year in 2007), Who’s Who Among American High School Teachers, Who’s Who in Black Alabama (Inaugural Edition, 2011), and the National Education Association, among other professional organizations.
