Neal Davis, director of student achievement at Northwest Missouri State University’s Missouri Academy of Science, Mathematics and Computing, has been selected to join the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools’ (NCSSS) Board of Directors.

“Neal is a very intelligent leader who sees both the big picture and important details in any situation,” Missouri Academy Dean Dr. Cleo Samudzi said. “I have no doubt that the NCSSS, the Missouri Academy and Northwest will greatly benefit from Neal’s participation as an NCSSS board member.”

NCSSS is an alliance of specialized high schools in the United States that fosters, supports and promotes the efforts of STEM-focused schools to attract and academically prepare students for leadership in mathematics, science, engineering and technology. It supports unique professional development programs for STEM teachers and unique learning experiences for students.

Formerly known as the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology, NCSSS was established in 1988 to provide a forum for member schools to exchange information and program ideas and evolve alliances among them. More than 90 institutions, representing more than 40,000 students and 1,600 educators, are affiliated with NCSSS, of which the Missouri Academy joined in 2001.   

Davis began his work as the Missouri Academy’s director of student achievement in 2011 and is responsible for monitoring the academic performance of all Missouri Academy students as well as advising them about the college application process.
