School Board Nominates Farren to Represent Region
Moore County Board of Education Chairwoman Kathy Farren has been nominated to be the region's representative to the North Carolina School Board Association in Raleigh.
Board member Laura Lang made the suggestion during Monday night's regular school board meeting, which was unanimously approved by the board.
"We haven't had a regional representative from Moore County in a long time," Lang said. "Her business experience and her time on the board would make her a great nominee for Moore County and for the state of North Carolina."
Farren will be one of several regional candidates vying for the position with the state board. The position is determined by an election to be held in November.
"I am honored that School Superintendent Spence asked you all to consider this," Farren said to her fellow board members. "It's important to have a presence and a voice in Raleigh."
Farren said that it has been a decade or more since Moore County had a representative on the state school board association.
"One can obviously learn a lot by being on a board like that, and it also presents an opportunity to give input on issues as they occur, rather than getting the information after the fact," she said. "Being in that position can only be good for the system and for the county."
