Courtney Hughley

Vice President, Communications

In her role as vice president of communications, Courtney Hughley works nationally to share NACSA’s roadmap to address the lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the education movement; build authorizing systems and policies with communities, and share best practices across the education field.

Before joining NACSA, Courtney was the Chief Communications & Strategy Officer at Crossroads Charter Schools in Kansas City, Mo. While there, she developed and executed effective communications strategies for staff, families, the community, and other stakeholders. Prior to that Courtney was the Senior Manager of Corporate Communications at KCP&L (now Evergy), an electric utility in Kansas City, Mo.

Courtney attended the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism and received a Bachelor’s of Journalism. She also has her MBA from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. She got into education to help create unique learning opportunities for students that were similar to her own experiences.

Those experiences met her individual needs, unlocked a love of learning, and set the stage for amazing opportunities. Creating that for all children is her passion. Courtney and her husband Ron live in Houston, TX and have three children — Ronald, Loren and Nicholas. Courtney would love to write a book someday, but she has NO clue what it would be about!
