As the son of a now deceased single mother of three who also taught in Louisiana public schools for nearly 30 years, Founding Board Member and proposed Board Chair Eric Dexter is living proof of how vital education is in a child's life. Even though he'd lost both of his parents by the time he was 19 years old, he has always valued the way his parents prioritized education in his early years. Mr. Dexter firmly believes his parents' commitment to education was why he was able to graduate from college with honors in four years. He understands that every child in Baton Rouge is unfortunately not grounded with this same foundation to prepare them for success in life and college. For this reason, he decided to join the Founding Board of Apex Collegiate Academy.
Mr. Dexter is currently completing his term as president of Forum 35, Baton Rouge's largest young professional organization (450+ members). With a focus of improving Baton Rouge, Forum 35 has given Mr. Dexter the opportunity to play a role in helping to improve public education through its Public Education Project (PEP) which provides Learning on Location grants to teachers that are interested in taking their students on educational field trips around Baton Rouge and the surrounding area. Forum 35 has also recently held its inaugural Career Night in partnership with local middle schools. As a board member of Apex Collegiate Academy, Mr. Dexter brings with him a track record of leadership with one of Baton Rouge's most prominent nonprofit organizations that has been serving our community over two decades.
With over 10 years of business development and sales experience, Mr. Dexter's passion for education and community development will serve the families and students of Apex Collegiate Academy well. His strong leadership and business skills will also help our team ensure that we manage and govern our school in an effective manner.
