TCCC announces new board members from Boeing, CCSD

North Charleston, SC – Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative (TCCC), a nonprofit organization that works to improve educational outcomes for all, has added new board members.

On June 20, the TCCC Board of Directors elected Jessica Jackson, director of Boeing Global Engagement for the Southeast, and Gerrita Postlewait, superintendent of the Charleston County School District, to serve three-year terms.

Jackson oversees the charitable investment strategy and employee engagement for Boeing sites across the Southeast. She has a master’s degree from Georgetown University and previously served as a vice president at the S.C. Federal Credit Union and director of communications at the Maryland Hospital Association. Jackson also served as a TCCC board member from 2013 to 2016 and is currently convener of TCCC’s High School Graduation Network.

Jackson replaces Joan Robinson-Berry on the board. Robinson-Berry, who was vice president and general manager of Boeing South Carolina, was recently promoted to vice president of engineering, maintenance and modifications for Boeing Global Services in Texas. She joined the TCCC board in October 2016 and stepped down earlier this month.

Postlewait was named CCSD’s superintendent in 2015. She previously served as the assistant vice president for ACT in Iowa, chief K-12 officer for The Stupski Foundation in California and superintendent of the Horry County School District. Postlewait is a graduate of West Virginia University and has served on TCCC’s Lowcountry Education Consortium since 2015.

Postlewait replaces Joe Pye on the board. Pye, superintendent of Dorchester School District 2, joined the TCCC board in June 2015 and recently completed a three-year term.

“I am pleased that Jessica Jackson and Gerrita Postlewait have joined the TCCC Board of Directors. Their energy and ideas are sure to make an important impact on our dynamic board,” said Anita Zucker, CEO of The InterTech Group and chair of the TCCC Board. “I am incredibly grateful for the work and leadership of Joan Robinson-Berry and Joe Pye. They were both tremendous assets and will be missed.”
