To the editor:

When Stephanie Hurst shared that she was going to run for Davie County Board of Education, I was overjoyed. Stephanie is the parent of Perri Smith, and stepmother to Thomas and Camden Hurst, who all graduated from the Davie County School Systesm. As a professional teachers with calssroom experience, Stephanie will bring knowlege of the classroom and school culture to the Baord of Education that will strengthen the Board of Education.

Stephanie is a cancer survivor. Her path was one that involved five surgeries, eight rounds of chemotherapy and 33 radiation treatments. With the Grace of God, she is here to share her story and support others. Stephanie is compassionate about reaching out support for cancer patients and survivors as theya re going throught hteir personal journey with cancer. I have witnessed her determination and strength of faith as she went through her own dificult and painful recovery. God is her canter and Stepahnie conveys her faith openly.

as a residen in Davie County for 42 years and a school counselor for 28 years, I have been a strong supporter of the voice of the public as well as educators in making sound decisions in the best interest of students. I feel Stephanie Hurst will have much to offfer the position of Board of Education member.
