CHARLESTON -- Dr. Andrew Rogers has served as a National Guardsman for his country, an administrator for Jackson students and a husband and father to his wife and their four children.

Now the longtime educator is serving in a new capacity -- as superintendent of Charleston R-1 schools.

"I'm very excited to land my first superintendent job," the Wayne County native said. "Charleston is a town rich in heritage and beliefs and is made up of a diverse population."

Rogers taught for six years in various school districts and spent the past few years as an administrator in Jackson for a combined 17 years working in education.
