Letter to the editor: Cammie Paige Webb qualified and ready to serve

To the editor:

Having served on the Davie County Board of Education for 12 years (1992-2004), I continue to be an avid supporter of public education. With four granddaughters currently erolled within the Davie County School System, I naturally want their educational opportunities to enhance their efforts to become responsible and contributing citizens in our ever-changing society. The Davie County School System continues to be one of the best school systems in the state of North Carolina. This has been accomplished through the work and efforts of some very dedicated people who always put the needs of our children first. The Davie County School System is fortunate to have such a caring and qualified work force to serve our children. All of our school personnel from the superintendent on down strive each and every day to give the children of Davie County a quality education.

With more than 2,000 absentee ballots having been requested for the upcoming election and early voting to take place in October, I would like to publicly endorse the following four people to serve on the Davie County Board of Education: the three incumbents, Paul Drechsler, Wendy Horne and W.G. “Dub” Potts, and newcomer Cammie Paige Webb. The incumbents have already proven themselves in their unselfish service to meet the needs of our children and to view the various successes of our students, teachers and staff. They have continued to develop clear and concise policies for our school system and have met the challenges to forge ahead to make decisions that affect each child within our school system. And Cammie Paige Webb is prepared to serve the children, teachers and staff members within our school system.

Cammie has extensive knowledge and personal experience in public schools and their governance. She will work alongside other board members in their efforts to help each child reach their full potential. She wants to ensure that our children are thriving through motivation, innovation and real-world learning opportunities. Cammie cares about the well-rounded individual with social and emotional learning and support to be given to those in need. She will strive to provide transparency and active communication with families, staff and the community.

Cammie Paige Webb is truly qualified to serve on the Davie County Board of Educaton because she would be a willing worker in the development of our young people into adults who will stand confidently, learn continuously and contribute meaningfully to our world both now and in the future.
