Megan Jones is a Walton-Verona Independent school board member
Please share why you decided to run for your local school board.
I am a proud graduate of Walton-Verona and returned to Verona so I could raise my children there and send them to a fantastic school district. I decided after they were in school that I would love to serve the school and the community by running for the board.
What is your favorite thing about serving on your local board?
I love being a part of this amazing district. The kids, the teachers and staff, and the parents are my favorite part. Seeing the district succeed is something you can't put a price on.
What activities do you enjoy doing outside your board work?
I enjoy watching my children play sports. We also love spending the weekends at Lake Cumberland. It's our happy place.
Name someone in your life you admire, or who inspired or helped you along the way.
My Mom and Dad. They both were both extremely hard workers and taught me to work hard for what you want. I'm not afraid to work hard to accomplish my goals both personally and professionally.
Please share something about yourself that most people may not know.
I have taught tumbling to children for 27 years. I love every minute and every relationship I have made over the years. I am at a point in my life where I am now teaching my former students' children. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing previous students and now their children. I am truly blessed to do something I love so much.
