Hello, I am Jeff McCartney and this is my third year as a board member with the Coalition for Healthy Communities.
I am a strong believer in community and I try to be actively involved in many areas in and around the Zion-Benton area.
Professionally I am currently the Superintendent of Schools for Winthrop Harbor School District.
Going into my fourth year as Superintendent I continue to strive for academic success with our students,
as well as providing a learning environment that incorporates equity and equality for student growth.
I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in United States History with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Nevada.
After teaching for three years I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Marian University
and my Ed. Specialist Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
I have served as an administrator and Superintendent in Wisconsin for 14 years and in Illinois for the past 7.
My wife Diane and I have two children, Kyle and Blake.
We like to spend time with family and travel whenever we get a chance.
