Kiser vies for Glasgow School Board seat

GLASGOW — Dr. Amelia Kiser has served as a member of the Glasgow Board of Education for the past four years, and she decided to continue her quest in making sure students throughout the district have all they need to succeed.

“I feel like we’ve done a lot during my first term but there are still things that I would like to see completed,” she said. “I feel like I received a lot from my education in Glasgow schools and this is my way to give back to the system.”

Kiser said she wants to see the full completion of the high school as well as how the lack of funding  will affect current and future students.

“I think that there will be a lot of decisions in the next two years in terms of fund allocations and things like that,” she said. “We are in the middle of trying to sell the central office … there will some moving and some new projects with that.”

The change in curriculum is another reason why Kiser chose to run for re-election, she said.

“I think we have come a long way in terms of changing some things in curriculum and instruction,” she said. “There are some things I want to see … I want to be a part of those decisions in the future and I want to make some changes there, too.”

Kiser said voters can expect many things from her service, such as dedication and a strong work ethic.

“I think at this point, I’ve learned a lot from my first four years on the board,” she said. “As far as fiscal matters and the day-to-day responsibilities of the school board, I think that experience is valuable. I think I’ve been able to be very level headed in making those decisions that we have to make, and I think I have taken into consideration what’s best for all kids in the district.”
