Board of Directors
Jarod McGuffey is the Board President and has been a resident of Clinton Township for 3 years. Not only is he a 21st century teacher/technology coach for Fraser Public Schools, but he is also co-founder of Trusted Voices, board member for Galileo Teacher Leadership Consortium Alumni, and a new membership liaison officer for the FEA. His academic credentials include a Master of Arts in Teaching from Oakland University, an M.B.A. from University of Phoenix, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Central Michigan University. As a former teacher of Dove Academy, Jarod views his leadership role as a means of paying back the students for all the lessons he learned.
Arnesha Jennings serves as the Vice President on Dove Academy’s Board of Directors. She is a graduate of Oakland University and now works in community development and race relations. She is actively involved in Challenge Detroit (Year Six Fellow), Detroit Dirt, Goodwill Green Works, Black Youth Network, and New True Vine Baptist Church. “I wanted to be a part of this board because I understand the value of education. Being born in Detroit, I have a connection to this city, especially the youth. As a young adult, I’m able to provide a diverse perspective as well as key insights when it comes to educational needs. The youth are the future; it is our responsibility to equip them with tools to succeed. Anything less is robbery.”
