Cynthia Stanley-Cash Running For District 5 School Board Seat

Saturday, January 04, 2014

Cynthia Stanley-Cash said she is planning to seek the District 5 seat on the County School Board.

Ms. Stanley-Cash is a graduate of Riverside High School and a native Chattanoogan.  She is employed by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with 34 ½ years of employment.  She is married to Fred Cash (founding member of The Impressions singing group) and together they have six children.

She said, "I am running for District 5 School Board to continue to serve my community as well as the schools, students/parents and administrators by contributing my time, talents and passion to help our students achieve educational excellence.  I have over 15 years of community involvement and leadership.  It is my goal to unite the community, schools, students and parents to work collectedly for the betterment of our youth.

"I will pursue and support close communication and cooperation with our local, state and federal government, school administrators, students, parents, community and civic organizations.

"I believe a school board representative should play a leadership role in the community, proactively seeking greater involvement and responsibility on the part of parents.  I believe it is essential to follow a process that encourages awareness and input from the school administrators and community.  Our parents must understand the educational process and the importance of their personal role and joint accountability in preparing their children for school and supporting their education throughout the years. 

"During times of budget shortages it is extremely important that all options be considered so as to keep the negative impact on teaching and learning to a minimum.   Therefore, it is very important to maintain close communication and cooperation with our local, state and federal governments. 

"The role of the school board is mandated, by law, to be one of governance through the establishment of appropriate policies.  I believe in a safe and secure learning environment, financial responsibility and active community involvement."
