SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Nichols-Lawson Middle School (NLMS) has announced that Anthony Jacks has been appointed as the school’s new assistant principal.

Born and raised in Sylacauga, Jacks is a proud 2000 graduate of B.B. Comer High School. He continued his academic journey at the University of Alabama, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business finance.

Jacks then fulfilled his teacher certification requirements at Jacksonville State University and is currently enrolled in the master’s program at the University of West Alabama.
