Jones County School Superintendent William Mathews began the May Board of Education meeting with a statement of the importance of the May 20 election.

Mathews noted at the May 13 meeting that the Board of Education is losing two experienced members with the retirement of District One representative Deloras Moon, who has represented the district for 23 years, and District Three representative Larry Haskins, who has served in the position for 33 years.

He pointed out four of the candidates for the two positions who were in the audience at the board meeting – Dr. Nancy Nash, Ken Hamilton, Tony Blash, and Richard Cazort.

“There is nothing more important than this election,” he said.

Mathews pointed out the art in the hallway of the Board of Education building. He said the art was courtesy of Nancy Kitchens’ art students.

“We are very proud of our art program. I think it is commendable that we have held on to art and music in our schools in the economic environment we have lived in the past few years,” he said.
