“For me, it’s just the superintendent and the School Board developing a vision, a common vision,” she said. “Always keeping in mind who put us here.”

Many people at the ceremony said they came out to support Jackson, and were hopeful about the future.

 “She’s very attuned to the needs of the students and the teachers and the community as a whole,” said Champee Kemp, a retired educator.

Several others echoed her sentiment. They said Jackson has what it takes to improve the district.

“I believe in Mary Beth Jackson,” said Karen Minks, a kindergarten teacher at Florosa Elementary School. “(And) I think it’s time for change.”
