1. I spent 34 years in Education, teaching History and Social Studies. Head Football Coach, Athletic Director, Head Basketball, Golf and Track Coach. Elected to Chattooga Board of Education in 2010. Member of North Summerville Baptist Church.
2. The most Important Role is to listen to the Community and the Teachers. I visited each school at least once a week and would continue to do so.
3. Right now the Curriculum. Provide needs to teachers and Administrators to improve grades, test scores and attendance.
4. To adapt to a changing world. To encourage technology advancement. Also to encourage young people to follow other directions in choosing a career, including college but also technical jobs.
5. I think Chattooga is headed in a good direction, especially when I was on the Board with the re-establishment of pride in the schools and the improvement of facilities and athletics.
Thank you for your consideration,
