Jefferson City School District Announces New Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Dr. Troy Hogg

Cole County native brings 29 years of experience in education, 18 as an elementary building leader

JEFFERSON CITY – The Jefferson City School District announced today that Dr. Troy Hogg has been named as the district’s new assistant superintendent of elementary education beginning July 1, 2022. Dr. Hogg will succeed Dr. Heather Beaulieu, who will transition to the role of deputy superintendent.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Hogg to our Jefferson City School District leadership team,” incoming superintendent Bryan McGraw said. “His approach as a visionary leader with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills needed to support our elementary principals will undoubtedly contribute to our goals of increasing student achievement.”

Dr. Hogg’s career in education began as a teacher's aide at West Elementary. From there, he went on to work as a K-8 gifted education teacher, a K-8 at-risk coordinator, and a fourth and sixth grade teacher. Dr. Hogg’s experience as an elementary building leader began as an assistant principal at Eugene Field Elementary for Columbia Public Schools, after which he became the lead principal responsible for transitioning Benton Elementary to a STEM school. He has led elementary buildings in the Kirkwood School District and, most recently, for Lee’s Summit R-7 Schools. 

“I consider myself quite fortunate to have had the opportunity to grow and learn in some of the finest school districts in the State of Missouri, and could not be more excited to bring my experience as an elementary leader to the Jefferson City School District,” Dr. Troy Hogg said. “I believe passionately that we must give our very best every single day to help students be successful, and I look forward to having an even greater impact on student learning and teacher success by serving those who lead the JC Schools elementary buildings.”

In 2020, Dr. Hogg was named a “Missouri Distinguished Principal” by the Kansas City Elementary Principal Association and has been an active member of regional, state, and national elementary principal organizations for more than 20 years. He worked as a teacher in the Japanese Teacher Exchange program for multiple schools in Japan from 2000 to 2003. Dr. Hogg received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Lincoln University and a master’s degree in elementary administration from William Woods University. He received an education specialist degree and Doctorate of Philosophy from the University of Missouri-Columbia, both in educational leadership and policy analysis.
