Committed to The Success of Our Students 


So many of us in this county are products of teachers and administrators in our public schools that touched our lives and awakened our minds. From Coach Bell and his 'Gummint' class to Mr. Massey's Chemistry class, I was inspired to learn and grow on my way to a fulfilling and successful life.

Our students deserve inspiration, encouragement, and a chance to find their passion. Our students deserve  an education system that will expose them to the vast possibilities available in life as well as prepare them to pursue those possibilities. 


I believe that Shelby County Public Schools are striving to do just that. 

The challenges we face are that the target for success moves when Frankfort or Washington speak and change the standard or threaten funding. The job market is ever changing and careers that weren't on the horizon even a few years ago are going unfilled and students must be prepared to fill them as well as jobs in the trades that aren't going away. 

The task at hand for public schools is broader in scope than ever. 

I want to be a part of the solution to the challenges our students face. I want to lend what talents and experience I have to a school system that is boldly navigating the waters of constant change. I want to advocate for our students through service and ensure that every student has an even better chance at finding their inspiration than we did. 

I ask for your support and your vote in 2018 as I run for Shelby County Board of Education, District 2.
