Dr. Jack Britt

Our namesake, Dr. Jack Britt, graduated from Fairmont High School.  While attending Fairmont he participated in three major sports, as a guard in basketball, a catcher in baseball and a halfback in football.  He was a co-captain of the football team during his senior year.

     His high school football talents yielded him a full scholarship at East Carolina University where again he excelled, becoming co-captain during his senior year.  Dr. Britt earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education and social studies and later his master’s degree in educational administration at East Carolina University.  He earned his doctorate in education at Nova University.

     Dr. Britt started his career as an educator with the Raleigh City Schools and after one year began teaching at Seventy-First High School.  He then served the Cumberland County Schools for 34 years, as a supervisor, assistant superintendent, deputy superintendent, and as superintendent from 1980-1989.

     Upon his retirement from the Cumberland County Schools, he began a career at Campbell University, beginning as the Director of Corporate Relations.  His outstanding performance in this position earned him the North Carolina Baptist Fund-Raiser of the Year.  He later was named Vice-President for Institutional Advancement and continues to provide exemplary leadership at Campbell University.

     In every aspect of his life, Dr. Britt has demonstrated a relentless commitment to accomplishment.  Those who know him will quickly tell you he is a man of high ethical standards, with unbelievable self-discipline and a constant aim for excellence.

     We at Jack Britt High School are privileged to have Dr. Jack Britt as a shining example of the value of high school academics and athletics.
