Dr. Keith McGee / Deputy Superintendent, Little Rock School District

BEST CAREER MOMENT SO FAR
The opportunity to serve the community of the Little Rock School District is a huge honor. I am grateful that I am able to positively impact the lives of students and assist them with achieving their dreams.

HOW I KNEW THIS WAS MY PASSION
When I invest time into the lives of young people that will potentially impact them positively — whether I am coaching, mentoring or just listening to students — I am reminded that this is my calling. It’s an amazing feeling.

WHAT KEEPS ME COMING BACK TO MY JOB EVERY DAY
My passion keeps me coming back daily. Every day is an opportunity for me to make a difference in the lives of others. I enjoy serving and empowering people to help them reach their full potential in life.

WHAT KEEPS ME MOTIVATED
My family keeps me motivated with their overwhelming love and support. They keep me encouraged and energized by modeling Godly love and servanthood. Their support means the whole world to me as I strive to be a difference-maker.

BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED
My deceased grandmother recited a quote from Nelson Mandela. The quote is, “A winner is a dreamer who never gives up.” Anyone can achieve their dreams through perseverance and commitment. I am living a dream job.
