As many of you heard on Thursday night, Noah Smith has announced his run for the open 4th District School Board seat. Smith, a recent graduate of Campbell County High School, says he’s seen the successes and the problems of our system and wants to help move our system forward together.
He brings a unique perspective to the table; being young and being a recent student in the system. Smith says that these traits have allowed him to be proactive in helping our school system move forward and gives him a different perspective in solving our system’s problems. He plans to put technology at the forefront of his campaign. He sees the importance of technology and how the increase of technology in the classroom will better equip our students for success and academic excellence. Smith says that increasing technology in the classroom will not only drive student achievement but also open endless opportunities for students to be college and career ready. He is currently an employee at the Campbell County Schools’ Technology Department but will leave his position on August 15 to fully devote himself to running for the School Board. He is no stranger to the workings of the Board of Education, having worked very closely with current and former board members to address needs in our county schools. Smith, with a unique knowledge of the needs and problems that the system faces, plans to address them head-on. Technology and school safety are the two main issues that he hopes to improve and address to better foster a safe and enriching learning environment.
Smith picked up his petition today, while Cade Sexton stopped by the Election Commission Office last Thursday for his petition to run. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/06/2018-1PM)
