Drew grew up in Jackson, Mississippi and stayed true to his roots by obtaining his B.A. at Jackson’s Bellhaven College. After working in the field of education for more than six years, he discovered the charter school movement and began making changes that would allow him to support his community. His belief in the charter school movement also led him to Charter School Capital where he hopes to have a positive impact on charter schools across the country. He has fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest and enjoys getting out into the sunshine when the weather allows, but he still appreciates the flavor of the south by reading books such as A Confederacy of Dunces in his spare time.
