Monday he was a guest speaker at First Baptist Church Pineville's business leaders luncheon.
Many community members, from city leaders to Pineville principals, attended the Christian centered meeting.
Powell shared his mission to show the school district and community that they are better together. He talked about his goals for his time as superintendent, and how working together will bring the very best outcome for students.
"I am very excited to be able to share with them the vision, the direction that we are trying to move Rapides Parish Schools in, Powell said. "Talk about what we believe in, and then what it means to engage, empower and elevate. So, it is always fun to share with a new audience. Particularly, with the group that Pastor Holloway has assembled here."
The First Baptist group holds the luncheon once a month to share what is going on over on their side of the river.
