Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover filled two openings on his administrative staff today by appointing Sherricka Fields as assistant chief administrative officer and Steven Jackson as staff executive assistant.
Both Fields and Jackson earned master's degrees in 2012 from Louisiana State University Shreveport, with Fields concentrating on business administration and Jackson on history and public policy.
Fields is a Shreveport native and 2005 graduate of Centenary College with bachelor's degrees in finance and business administration. She spent 10 months working as manager of administrative services for the Shreveport Airport Authority, where she was responsible for fiscal operations and leases.
Jackson is a former admissions counselor at Centenary and most recently was executive director of the Cedar Grove Community Development Corp., where he provided oversight for fundraising, research and organization of capital resources. He graduated in 2010 from Grambling State University with a bachelor's in Hotel Restaurant Management.
``I am very pleased to bring two of Shreveport's best and brightest into the fold,'' Glover said. ``Both have the professionalism, work ethic and skills needed to function at a high level and I have no doubt they'll serve our citizens well in the roles they've been assigned.''
