Leadership

Conway Christian School’s mission statement and governance is held on high by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. Over the years the board has varied in size. Currently nine men and women serve the Conway Christian community as board members: Arnold Hameister (board chair), John David Smith, Barney Burrow, Laura Nabholz, Cindy Hendricks, Blake Day, Ladd Ellis, Randy Lewis and Patricia Quick.

The board employs one individual to execute the day to day operations of the school. In March of 2016 the Board of Trustees announced Mr. Jason L. Carson as the new President and CEO. He comes to the school with fifteen years of experience in private Christian education. Most recently Mr. Carson served as the Director of Institutional Advancement for Little Rock Christian Academy overseeing the admission, development and marketing departments. During his tenure the school received over $25 million dollars in donations and grew in enrollment from 650 to 1450 students. In recent years Mr. Carson has also served as a consultant for private Christian schools across the country assisting them in organizational management, strategic planning, and advancement best practices. In September 2014 PAIDEIA Inc. awarded Mr. Carson the Don Weber, Leadership in Development Award for excellence in the field. He is also a presenter at the annual Wheaton Best Practices Conference held every June.

A native of Benton, AR, Mr. Carson graduated from Benton High School and received his college degree from the University of Arkansas. He is married to Ashley and is the father to three girls, Avery, Adalyne and Emily.

Mr. Carson’s Leadership Team consists of Dr. Billy Crow (Upper School Principal and Academic Dean), Donald Holt (Lower School Principal), Judy Lewis (Pre-K Director), Melissa Hogue (Business Manager) and Justin Kramer (Athletic Director).
