Alcorn alumnus, Kalvin Robinson selected to join the National Federation of State High School Association’s board of directors

Kalvin Robinson, an Alcorn State University alumnus, earned a promotion for his commitment to excellence in the Madison County School District.

Robinson, who serves as associate superintendent for the Madison County School District, was appointed to the National Federation of State High School Association (NFHS) board of directors Thursday, Aug. 1. In his new role, Robinson, along with the other board members, will assist the NFHS executive director in interpreting and enforcing the provisions of the constitution and bylaws, which includes overseeing the annual budget, establishing committees, and approving all sports rules changes.

As Robinson reflects on his career achievements, he credits his experience at Alcorn for his successful career.

“Alcorn taught me to think outside of the box while studying there,” said Robinson.

Robinson began his career in education in 1995 as a teacher and coach at Jim Hill High School. In 1999, he became a teacher and coach at Clinton High School before moving into administration in the Rankin County School District as assistant principal and later as the principal. His tenure at Rankin County Schools was from 2003 to 2014. In 2014, he moved to Madison County Schools as associate superintendent.

Because of his years of experience, Robinson feels he is equipped to take on his latest task. 

“I’ve had plenty of knowledge and experience with athletics and activities, and I plan to continue using that knowledge in this new position to help lead success and progression.”
