School board should choose Dr. Church for superintendent

Friday, December 7, 2012

It is now December, and there is a very important decision that needs to be made. This decision is more critical than which present to buy your child for Christmas, for this decision will affect your child's most important gift of all, and that is their education.

Monday, the school board will select a superintendent of public schools, and I believe that they currently have the right person for the position. Dr. Mark Church has done a wonderful job as the interim superintendent. Everyone already knows that Dr. Church is well-qualified with the credentials, experience and knowledge to be the superintendent.

But perhaps the most important value that Dr. Church possesses is that he also has the heart for Franklin County, which no other candidate possesses. Dr. Church grew up in Franklin County, graduated from Franklin County High School, along with his children, and has dedicated his career and life to Franklin County and the public school system.

It would be both shameful and harmful to fill this important position with someone outside of the county, who may have no other vested interest in our county other than a pay check, when we already have a well-qualified person in Dr. Church.

This weekend, I encourage everyone to contact their school board member and advise them that we need Dr. Mark Church to be the superintendent of Franklin County public schools.
