The voters of District 1 have a wonderful opportunity to elect Marion E. Barnes to the Richmond County Board of Education. Mr. Barnes was my principal when I was a classroom teacher and an assistant principal at T.W. Josey High School.
Mr. Barnes is an experienced and dedicated educator. He spent his career working for the children, teachers and citizens of this area, trying to make their lives better. Mr. Barnes, though retired, has remained active in the community.
Mr. Barnes remains abreast of current educational trends, and still attends (at his own expense) conferences and meetings such as the National Association of Secondary Principals.
He has an excellent reputation throughout the educational community for his knowledge and is often sought out for advice.
