Meet Dr. Annmarie Kent-Willette, Jacksonville's New Education Commissioner

Jacksonville University

Mayor Alvin Brown recently announced the successor to Dr. Donnie Horner who left as the city’s education commissioner after serving two years in that post.

Like Horner, Dr. Annmarie Kent-Willette is on loan from Jacksonville University where she’s a professor. 

Also like her predecessor, she will receive a dollar per year salary from the city for her role helping the mayor further his education agenda.

WJCT education reporter Cyd Hoskinson spoke with Kent-Willette about her background and what her focus will be for the next two years.

Cyd Hoskinson began working at WJCT on Valentine’s Day 2011.
