Jay Ferguson

Board Member
Term: 2022 - 2025
Jay Ferguson has worn many hats for Lorain City Schools — teacher, coach, principal, and assistant superintendent. He is one of the newest Lorain City Schools Board of Education members after officially taking his oath of office in 2021
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, and graduated from Admiral King High School in 1973. 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 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 in Lorain with his wife, Mary Jo, a Lorain High School teacher, son, Storm, and daughter, Skyler.
Superintendent's Committee: Human Resources, Finances, Teaching & Learning, Athletics, Student Achievement Liaison
