#76 – Welcome Mathu Gibson to our team!
Help us welcome Mathu Gibson, our new Associate Director of Family Empowerment, to our team! Read more below about Mathu, his experiences, and what he’ll bring to our organization and those we serve.
Hi! I am Mathu Gibson; a former NFL player turned educator. I am a native of Winston-Salem, NC, and a graduate of Wingate University. I’ve always been passionate about mentoring and developing youth, but I never thought my path would lead me to education. When my football career ended in 2017, I had to pivot from a professional athlete to a working professional. Rediscovering my identity outside the game of football led me on a roundabout journey to education.
In 2019, I moved to Charlotte and began working at a local Title I charter school. For three years, I served in various roles that allowed me to serve as a liaison between students, teachers, and families, develop and implement a Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum for K-5 students, and build strong community partnerships. In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, traveling, creating content for my podcast, doing commentary for Wingate football games, going on hikes, doing yoga, eating good food, and spending time with loved ones.
I believe relationships are your greatest wealth, and I find joy in building meaningful relationships. I’m excited to work for a company that aligns with my core values and does the work of empowering schools and families. SchermCo is a company committed to doing intentional and purposeful work; they understand that the work is more significant than themselves.
