News Outlook County School Board Pomeroyton District Wendall C. Back Name: Wefidell C. Back Section of the county where you live: Welling- ton Office for which you are a candidate: School board member in the Pomeroyton precinct. I am a graduate of Me- nifee Co. High School (1967)m a graduate of Moi'ehead State Univer- sity (1978) and (1988) with a Bachelor's degree in Agriculture and a Mas- ter's degree in Vocational Education. I am a retired teacher from the Morgan Co. school system, with 20 years expereicne. I am also a Vietnam War Veteran, and a for- mer board member. Although the current members of the School Board are good solid people, I feel that a fresh perspective can some- times make things better. I ttfirtk :diffe ent are :needed: ' We stronger Students in the academic fields and vo- cational fields. These are the areas I would like to work to improve. Ruth Bryant I, Ruth Bryant, am a candidate for re-election to the Menifee County Board of Education for the Pomeroyton district. As a teacher, an ad- ministrator and a board member, my concern has always been to help students get the best ed- ucation Menifee County can provide and to pre- pare them for life after graduation. Menifee County has good things to offer stu- dents. We have good teachers, administrators and support staff who are dedicated to the educa- tion of our children. The .board of education, su- perintendent, principals and teachers are always looking for ways to help our students learn and to help them improve their scores on the tests re- quired by the state. Tech- nology is an important part of schools, the work place, and our everyday lives. Our students begin to use it as soon as they enter school. The Kentucky Educa- tion Reform Act of 1990 moved the hiring and aso sigument of teachers and staff from the board of education to the school- based councils. This allows the board of edu- cation to focus on other concerns. One of those concerns is the budget. By carefully watching spending, Menifee Coun- ty has been able to save money that can be used if something unexpected happens. Schools cannot borrow money to oper- ate. Without a cushion of savings, an unexpected expense might require laying off staff or cutting programs. I will continue to sup- port the administration and staff of Menifee County schools and the parents of our children as we, together, move our children toward gradua- tion and successful jobs and careers.

I currently work as a RN at the University of Kentucky. Previously in my career I had the privi- lege of working with hos- pice and was able to work with families in Menifee County. My husband, Jackalee Reed, is also a graduate of MCHS and our son, Justice Reed, is currently a sophomore there. I am a member of the Means Baptist Church and I love the community and coun- ty in which I live. I am not a politician and thought long and hard before I decided to enter this race. I feel our children and their educa- tion is of the upmost im- portance. The students of Menlfee County deserve a quality education and it is our duty as parents, grandparents, citizens, and taxpayers to ensure that they receive this ed- ucation. I feel that the tax dollars are not properly utilized at this time. I will work diligently to ensure that your money is spent in a manner to directly improve your child's edu- cation. Our teachers, bus drivers, cooks, mainte- nance staff, instructional assistants, guidance counselors, secretaries, etc. are of vital impor- tance to the success and safety of our students and should receive the re- spect and compensation they deserve. I have attempted to visit every household in the Means precinct, if I an MB2L I am also a Cer- tified Public Accountant (CPA). Some of the top issues I will focus on ff re-elected to the Menifee County School Board are: finances, safety and facilities. Finances are one of my top priorities. Edu- cation takes money, and unfortunately Menifee County does not have the industrial and commer- cial tax base that most surrounding counties have. We rely heavily on state SEEK revenues. We have seen a number of education funding cuts over the past few years, and will likely see more in the future. That means we must make sure we spend every dol- lar wisely. I plan to make sure that Menifee County gets the most "bang for the buck" out of every dollar. Safety is also very im- portant. It's very difficult for a child to concentrate on learning when they are overcome by fear. Schools should be safe- havens that allow kids to be themselves and learn. I want to make sure ev- ery child who enters a Menifee County school feels safe. Facilities are another priority. Later this year, students and staff will move into the new addi- tion to the High School building. This new build- ing is s a fabulous thing! I'm very excited and can't wait to see it completed and furnished. How- ever, Menifee County re- ally needs and deserves a NEW school. I plan to .w.issed you I ould hke font oe tO camp aJgLA for "to t fl igo ppor ne?,v'scl oi e fi ee': to apologize. I am asking for your vote on Novem- ber 6th. Feel free to con- tact me 606-768-9553. Valerie Wells County. Education is the key to the future. It is the foundation for success of Menlfee County and our nation. Our children deserve the highest qual- ity education. I plan to do my best to make sure they get it. Mariba District Bennie Deskins Mariba District ' I am Bennie Deskins, a candidate for school board member in the Mariba Precinct in the November elections. I can only make one prom- ise, and that is I will give 100% every day to see that our children receive the best education possi- ble and make sure that all moneys, including your tax dollars, are spent in the classroom, where money is needed the most. Also, work with other board members o'n issues that need to be re- solved, one being we ed- ucate our kids here and then they have to leave home to work. I feel this issue needs attention. The reason I am run- ning for school board member is simple, and that is I love all our chil- dren here in Menifee County, and I feel they deserve the best educa- tion possible. I appreciate your vote in November. Bennie Deskins Kid's First is where I stand. Phyllis Lawson Hello, I am running for re-election to the Menifee County Board of Education seat in the Mariba precinct, as a School Board member in the past, and present, I am always looking out for the best interest of our students. The students of our county are going to be our leaders in the future, .so we want the best education possible for them, Our goal is that all students are either college, or career ready when they graduate, and leave us. We have good teachers, administrators and educators in our school system, and they work diligently to make sure each student does the best to their ability. Our students rank along with the surroundings school systems. Inn fact ,we have students that score higher than some School Systems in our region. Our School has the highest in technology programs, and we are to be proud of Mr. Kirk Peck for coordinating all this for our students so that when they leave us they are College-Career Ready Being on the School Board for a num- ber of years, I have seen a lot of changes, and our School has grown, and is in better shape in lots ot ways, such as newly addi-. tions to the buildings, our contingency funds, new buses, great leaders, and we need to keep work- ing to keep it this way I would appreciate your vote on Nov. 6th.
