Jay Ferguson has worn many hats for Lorain City Schools — teacher, coach, principal, and assistant superintendent. Now, he is one of the newest Lorain City Schools Board of Education members after officially taking his oath of office this year.
This is Jay’s first time as an elected official, but he is a true Titan with a long history of support for the district. He was born and raised in Lorain, graduated from Admiral King High School in 1973, and after completing his undergraduate studies at Denison University in 1977, Jay kept his talents close by serving the district for more than 30 years. He also earned a graduate degree from Baldwin Wallace University in 1990 and retired from education in 2014.
When asked why he wanted to become a school board member, Jay said his goal is to be "part of returning Lorain Schools to excellence. I believe in Lorain Schools because I've seen how great it can be.” Jay lives on Skyline Drive with his wife, Mary Jo, a Lorain High School teacher, and son, Storm, and daughter, Skyler.
