The new superintendent for the Catawba County Schools (CCS) system is ready to share his vision for the future. Matthew Stover spent his first month on the job visiting all 29 schools in the district, meeting as many students, teachers, parents and staff as he could.

One of his first goals is to grow the leadership he’s already seen in CCS.

“It’s about identifying no matter what you’re title is in this district or how many hours you work, you’re a leader,” Stover said. “It might be a teacher who has exceeded growth or a custodian who already has a beautiful looking school or a bus driver who has great control over their bus; we still need to find ways of growing those people.”
