I was born and raised in Madison County, and I have lived here all of my life. I graduated from Sparkman High School and have seen firsthand what teachers and administrators need to succeed. Madison County children deserve the best education possible. I will work with local and state leaders to make sure our teachers have the tools they need in the classroom. If there is one thing the pandemic taught us, it is that access to 21st-century technology is not an option. It is a must. Our children must have the best possible access to internet connectivity. Our community must support the restoration of discipline and safety in the classroom. I’m positive my passion for this community’s future, along with my work ethic and plans to give our children the best education possible, will allow the people in my district to confidently select me as the next member of the Madison County School Board of Education.

This is just an example of the numerous ways Heath has impacted not only the Toney Community but the entire Madison County Community.
