Hello, my name is Julie Buko Gentry. I have been a member of the Scottsboro City Board of Education for the past six years. I have served as President of the school board for three of those years and would like to continue another term this fall.
I have grown up, attended school, worked, and raised a family in Scottsboro. I have also been employed in the Scottsboro City School System as a teacher for twenty-two years and the Jackson County Schools for seven years prior to that. I am currently employed by Cumberland Presbyterian Mother’s Day Out as the preschool director and have been doing so for the past ten years.
The Scottsboro City School Board has worked very hard over the past six years to help bring an updated agenda to our system. We have worked diligently alongside our Superintendent and Chief School Financial Officer to help achieve a successful capital outlay. We have streamlined our schools according to the needs of our community, with the hopes of offering more to our students. We are able to offer music and art at each of our schools year-round, as one example.
I look toward the needs of a well-rounded student in any field, whether it is a service and community job base or a college career. Each area yields an adult who can function and aid in their life individually, in their families, and within a community. I am proud to be a part of the accomplishments we have achieved, and part of the goals we set for our future.
The present and future of our city, state, country and world are as we have never experienced before, we all must work together during these times for our children’s futures. We do not know what that future will exactly look like for education, but I promise to do my best to cultivate and nurture the opportunities that arise and the people that influence our children through our school system. Let us persevere together and come out stronger on the other side. Through education and caring about one another, we can indeed accomplish this!
