Why I am running for School Board

Effective people harbor a desire for the opportunity to make a lasting impression on their community.  We all long to know our true purpose, and to know that we have made a difference.   God has made each one of us uniquely equipped if we choose to submit to His design for our lives.  What may seem small to us, might have a larger impact on the community than you can imagine………..

I have a heart for children & education.  As an educator and entrepreneur,  I am willing to stand in the gap with this board of professionals and do my part for the future of our children and this community.  Education is a way of life in the Lloyd home. I understand the impact we can have on the life of a child.

After the Civil War Josiah Holland wrote;

“God give us men & women of substance.

Times like this demand strong minds, great hearts,

True faith and ready hands.

Men whom the lust of office does not kill

Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy

Men who possess opinions and a will.

Men who have honor, men who will not lie.”

These are the qualities we should all desire in our elected officials.

    Wow! I love that passage you quoted by Josiah Holland. If only we could all abide by these words….. We’ll let you lead by example, Jim. Make a difference.
