Heather Scott

Candidate for Wake County Board of Education - District 1

Indy Week

“We’re endorsing Scott, who’s spent the last two decades teaching music education. But Scott, who has two kids in public schools, including one involved in the 504 program that accommodates students with disabilities, impressed us with her deep knowledge of issues like racial disparities in suspensions and the problems associated with the school assignment process. Scott has our vote.”

Rolesville, NC’s Mayor Frank Eagles

“A real school mom and not a career politician. We need a fresh new face on the Board. One who understands the needs of the students and parents.”

Endorsement for Heather Scott

 

It is my pleasure as Superintendent of Greensburg Schools in Greensburg, Indiana to endorse Mrs. Scott for a school board position.  Although it has been many years since she taught band in our school district she is still remembered for her attitude and vibrant spirit with students.  She was a first year band director at a junior high school and handled the job with great ability.  She had an effective way of instructing and built very positive relationships with students, colleagues, and parents.  Her teaching experience and relationship building skills should lend themselves to helping her become an outstanding school board member.  I would highly endorse her for a school board position.

Bishop Noll Institute - Former Principal

It is my pleasure to endorse Heather Scott for the Wake County School Board.  As a long time school administrator, I am fully confident that she will be a board member who makes a difference in the lives of students.  As her former principal, I can attest to the transformational experience students had in her classroom.  Heather inherited a failing music program in both vocal and instrumental performance. It did not take long for the program to experience a renaissance under her leadership.  She mentored students and challenged them to stretch and grow in her classroom.  She supported them to reach the goals she set and they happily worked hard to achieve them.  

 
I have no doubt that she will raise the bar of excellence for all students in Wake County.  She understands what it takes to be a successful educator and will do all she can to support teachers and administrators to be the best they can be and making Wake County a school district to be emulated.

I am proud to endorse my friend, Heather Scott. for the Wake Co BoE. Students, parents, teachers, and administrators would be incredibly fortunate to gain someone as smart, fair, and compassionate as Heather to guide our public school system. I know she will bring the same commitment to this position as she does as a volunteer for the Team Drea Foundation for ALS research that I run. Please help spread the word and vote for Heather!
