Nancy McDonald announces bid for re-election to School Board
May 14, 2020
I am a candidate for Lewis County Board of Education 8th District. I am writing to ask for your support and vote. This letter will tell you a little about me and why I would like to remain a member of the School Board.
Why do I want to be a Member of the Lewis County School Board?
I want to continue to increase my service to the community and I want to provide the best for Lewis County's future and educational needs. These goals along with my personality, skills and experiences can best be realized as a member of the School Board. I believe in our educational system and the people who make this community what it is, I want to continue to fight for our administration, educators, and children.
While being a member here in the county I have been Accredited a Level 4 in the Boardsmanship Awards Program in the State of Tennessee.
What do School Board Members do?
School Board Members are responsible for establishing a vision for the schools and creating an efficient organizational structure for the Superintendent and administrators to manage the schools and for the teachers and students to teach and learn. School Board Members are responsible for policy, monitoring and adjusting finances, managing the collective bargaining process and serving as a judicial and appeals body when conflicts go unresolved. Further, School Board Members have a symbolic role; they represent the emotional and relational fabric of our community shown by their ability to work as a team, to listen, and to represent ALL community interests.
Why should You Vote for Me?
I am first and foremost a Christian and am very proud of my family and community. I have a personal relationship with many educators and want to continue to represent their hard work and effort in education. I have a big heart when it comes to children, I know the aspect of being a parent in Hohenwald and will be willing to do whatever it takes to give the children the best education possible. I believe in those underdogs and second chances. I want to give a voice to those who are unable to speak their mind in certain circumstances. We have so much more to give as a School Board, I want us to work together and make this the best educational system it can be. I appreciate and love each and every one of you, I hope to receive your vote and trust in the upcoming election.
