Hickman Mills School Board Elections In April 2014
My name is Sandy Sexton and I am one of nine candidates at this time running for school board. There are three seats open and so far there are nine candidates that have filed so far.
Incumbents: Dan Osman and Bonnaye Mims
Past board members: Debbie Aiman and April Cushing
New candidates: Karry Palmer and myself, Sandy Sexton
I have been told that there will be three candidates from Freedom, Inc, and I am assuming incumbent Breman Anderson, Jr. will be one of those three.
I would like to direct you to my website for the campaign to introduce myself and and wanted to further explain the reason why I am running.
As a member of the five-year strategic planning committee of the Hickman Mills School District, I am VERY supportive of Dr. Carpenter and his vision for our school district. I do not agree with some of the school board members from the Freedom, Inc. It seems that there is an underlying personal agendas, instead of focusing on education for our students.
I am supportive of Bonnaye Mims, Eric Lowe and Dan Osman.
Even though I am a white female, I don't think that the color of your skin should have any bearing on our decisions. I spent 19 years at Penn Valley Community College and have seen first hand of high school graduates that do not have the basic skills to pursue college, without having to take some college preparatory classes.
My hopes are to encourage basic skills education and making sure that our technology infrastructure is up-to-date to assist our educators in receiving the resources needed to prepare our students.
