Attorney At Law; Former State Legislator
For over five years I have worked closely with Dr. Anderson in the conception and establishment of Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter Schools and to a lesser extent Pine Bluff and Capital City Lighthouse Charter Schools. None of those effort would have have come to pass without her commitment, strength and dedication to improving education of youngsters of our local community and state, as is well recognized by the local board, parents, and students who are the beneficiaries of her drive and talent.
President and Chief Executive Officer, Lighthouse Academies, Inc.
Dr. A, as we know her, served as key member of the Lighthouse leadership team for over six eyars. She is responsible for building our Arkansas region from nothing to a strong group of five schools. Dr. Anderson also supported Lighthouse's growth from a couple of schools in New York, to a network with over twenty schools in eight states. She provided leadership or supervised schools and regions across the network, but the Arkansas area is where her talents were truly evident.
Founder, Lighthouse Academies, Inc.
From our first meeting, I was impressed with Dr. Anderson’s commitment to serving children in high need communities. She has exceptional communication and leadership skills. She is a team player. I relied on Dr. Anderson for advice and counsel on a wide range of organizational issues. The accomplishments of the team she lead are well known in Arkansas. Under her leadership, and with her direct involvement, the team she recruited developed a network of high performing charter schools in Arkansas/Oklahoma that now serve close to 2,000 students.
Executive Director, Tulsa Legacy Charter School
Dr. Anderson is an impeccable leader with a wealth of experience and innovative solutions. Her unique ability to recognize, understand, and explain complex issues in education administration revolutionized my thinking and my actions. She constantly provided me with proven systems and structures to maximize productivity and effectiveness in my role as an executive leader. At the heart of all the support she provided, she sought solutions that were in the best interest of children. Her work ethic, values, and vision were a constant source of motivation as she led by example. From her influence, my growth personally and professionally was transformational. Working with her has been an invaluable experience!
