Joanne McCall elected FEA President!

Nearly 1,000 delegates attending the Florida Education Association’s annual Delegate Assembly have elected longtime FEA Vice President Joanne McCall as the organization’s new president.

McCall succeeds Andy Ford as FEA president. Ford served as the head of the teachers union for the last 12 years – and McCall was vice president of the group for the same period. McCall taught as a speech language pathologist at North Sumter Primary School in Sumter County before becoming FEA vice president.

“I thank the delegates in this room for getting on this ride with me,” McCall told the delegates today. “With the other officers elected this weekend, we will be a diverse and dedicated team working to bolster the teachers and education staff professionals in this state, so that we can improve the lives of the children we teach.”

Fed Ingram, president of the United Teachers of Dade, was elected FEA vice president and Luke Flynt, president of the Indian River County Education Association, was elected FEA secretary treasurer, replacing Clara Cook, who retired earlier this year.

Delegates cast their ballots Friday evening and the results were announced at this morning’s session of the Delegate Assembly. In addition, Brian Kerekes, a teacher from Osceola County, was elected as a National Education Association director, representing Florida.
