Ivory Phillips (left) is congratulated by acting Jackson City Council President Frank Bluntson (right) as Councilmen Kenneth Stokes (second from left) and Leslie McLemore look on. After months of delay because certain council members would not vote on his nomination, Ivory Phillips can now serve on the Jackson Public School Board.Four Jackson City Council members confirmed Phillips, a retired Jackson State University professor, on Thursday following a hearing.Phillips, appointed by Jackson Mayor Frank Melton to the expired school board seat held by Maggie Benson White, said after the meeting that the appointment would be a "challenge."Phillips, who said he would like to turn JPS into a "flagship for the state, if not region," answered two rounds of council questions about his experience, philosophy, goals and biases.Phillips also addressed claims, raised by McLemore, that he cannot work effectively with nonblack students, teachers and administrators.He dismissed the suggestions, shaking his head and responding, "Everybody who really knows me knows that I am capable of doing that and have done it in a number of settings."Phillips also told council members that he would like to increase community involvement in the public school system."If you view schools as community centers, everybody feels free to come in and do his or her part to improve the school, to add extra value to what the school is trying to do," he said.And the system must find new ways to keep children, especially young men, off the streets, he said."We need to impress upon male JPS teachers the simple thing of being a role model, making the children feel appreciated and respected," said Phillips, adding that after-school programs should go beyond athletics.Melton said Phillips will be an asset to the school board."Everybody knows Dr. Phillips to be a very decent person that has a long history at Jackson State and has done a tremendous job," Melton said.
