Heath Morrison Named Senior VP For McGraw-Hill Education

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Former Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools superintendent Heath Morrison has a new gig. 

McGraw-Hill Education announced that Morrison will be joining the company as senior vice president of government affairs. In this role, he will be responsible for representing the company’s government-related opportunities before federal and state legislators and regulators and representatives of local school districts. He also will work on policy issues affecting the company and the education industry.

Morrison began his career as a social studies teacher in Virginia and Maryland and quickly moved into administration, becoming principal of both a middle and high school as well as a Community Superintendent in Montgomery County, MD.  In 2009, he was selected to serve as Superintendent of Washoe County School District in Reno, Nevada, and has most recently served as Superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

“I’m thrilled to join McGraw-Hill Education at such an important time for both the company and the industry,” added Morrison. “McGraw-Hill Education’s market-leading adaptive products are transforming the science of learning with personalized, data-driven solutions that drive student acheivement.  We want to be a strong voice in government affairs to improve the lives of students of all ages.”

Morrison resigned unexpectedly from CMS in November. The school board named Ann Clark Superintendent last week.
