At the Tuesday, May 26 Berkeley County Board of Education meeting, the promotion of Dr. Anthony Dixon as the Executive Director of Academics and Innovations was unanimously approved.

“Dr. Dixon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Academics and Innovation Department,” Dr. Wulf said. "He has served as a principal at the elementary, middle and high school levels and truly understands the needs of our school communities. Dr. Dixon also co-chairs our district Design Team, and will be an asset to us as we work to ensure that our students are college and career ready."

Dr. Dixon began his career as the GEAR UP Program Director at the College of Charleston in 2000 before joining BCSD as a teacher at St. Stephen Elementary School in 2004, investing the past 20 years in public education. In 2006, Dixon joined the Boulder Bluff Elementary School staff as an assistant principal and then went on in 2007 to work as an assistant principal at Daniel Island School. After spending six years working as an administrator in Charleston County, Dixon returned to Berkeley County in 2014 as the principal of Cainhoy Elementary/Middle School. In 2015, he was named the first principal of Philip Simmons Middle, and has served as the principal of Philip Simmons High School since June 2018. 

Leaving Philip Simmons High after celebrating the first graduating class will be difficult, but Dr. Dixon said he is excited about this new challenge and is looking forward to working alongside the strong principal leadership in Berkeley County to continue transforming education to better prepare students for life after high school graduation.

"It has been an absolute honor to serve the Cainhoy and Philip Simmons communities, and I will continue to support their endeavors. This is most definitely not a goodbye, just a 'see you later'. I will continue leading the Philip Simmons High community until July, but will never be more than a phone call away. I am looking forward to assuming this new position as it aligns with my career goals and allows me to continue to serve in a district that I love. I am excited to have this opportunity to support student learning across Berkeley County."
