Stacey Derrick

Non-partisan candidate for Lexington County School Board District 3.

Occupation: Financial Secretary

Education: Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Columbia College

Experience: My professional background is in banking and finance. I am employed with three non-profit corporations. I have also spent the last seven years volunteering in Lexington School District Three. During each of those seven years I have held a PTO officer position.

Why should voters choose you in this election?

I am dedicated to our district/community and the families in it.   My volunteer history and my employment within our community support that dedication.

I understand the role and function of a school board and how important it is for its members to be able to work together in order to achieve any success. If we do not elect school board members that have this understanding the district suffers, the students suffer, and the community suffers. Each individual board member should have strong personal opinions about the district and it's management, as I do, but also be able to communicate and listen in a manner to that will allow for progress.
