Dr. Carla Evers
Dr. Carla J. Evers proudly serves as the Superintendent of Schools for Pass Christian Public School District. She previously served as Director of Instructional Programs for the Gulfport School District where she helped lead the effort to implement the state’s College and Career Readiness Standards and develop the middle college concept and career academies at the district’s high school. As part of the Innovative Schools program, this work helped lay the foundation for broader Carnegie unit offerings at middle school, flexible scheduling, and an expansion of dual credit offerings. Dr. Evers served as an elementary principal while in Gulfport as well as during her nine-year tenure with the Natchez-Adams School District. Her greatest joy was seeing both schools improve two performance levels during her tenure (Morgantown: 1 to 3 and West Elementary: 3 to 5).
Her passion is found in ensuring students of Pass Christian receive a world-class education through a commitment to excellence, strong community partnerships, and a resolve to transform lives. The district has demonstrated its enormous potential by earning the distinction of being one of the top-rated school districts in the state as well as national recognition for its work with students of poverty and achievements in Advanced Placement and has shown a strong resilience. She looks forward to maintaining excellence in the Pass Christian School District by empowering students to be college-career ready learners, critical thinkers, and contributing citizens.
During her 28 years as an educator, she has earned several awards and honors such as Teacher of the Year and Administrator of the Year. She has also served on several community boards and belonged to community service organizations such as The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center Board of Trustees, Head Start Policy Board, Executive Committee of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Rotary Education Committee, to name a few.
She is married to her husband of 28 years, retired Sergeant First Class Carlos M. Evers; together they have six adult children and two grandchildren. Her family attends First Missionary Baptist Church of Handsboro where Rev. Dr. S. V. “Sonny” Adolph is their pastor.
