Ty Ankrom has been a lifelong educator, giving back to Pickaway County where he’s lived his entire life.
As superintendent of the Pickaway County ESC since 2007, he has made it a priority to add staff members to the ESC and add programs that help meet the needs of the county school districts. Examples are additional ESL teachers and behavior specialists, increasing preschool services offered, and creating partnerships within the county and with other ESCs. He also was instrumental in working with district superintendents to create Pathways Plus, a program to help at-risk students fulfill graduation requirements.
Ankrom has created or expanded partnerships with the Pickaway County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Pickaway County Family & Children First, Pickaway Works, Pickaway-Ross Career & Technology Center, Ohio Christian and Ashland universities and the University of Phoenix.
