Busi­ness Owner Seeks An­other Term

Lin­coln School Board, Zone 3

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - SCHOOL ELECTIONS -

Ken­dra Moore, 40, has served on Lin­coln School Board for seven years and said her ex­pe­ri­ence in mar­ket­ing, brand man­age­ment and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment are valu­able as­sets when serv­ing as a mem­ber of a school board.

Moore is seek­ing re-elec­tion to rep­re­sent Zone 3 on Lin­coln’s Board of Ed­u­ca­tion.

She is owner of Re­deemed Con­struc­tion, LLC, and holds a bach­e­lor of sci­ence de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion from the Uni­ver­sity of Arkansas and a mas­ter’s de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion from John Brown Uni­ver­sity. She and her hus­band have two chil­dren in the Lin­coln Con­sol­i­dated School Dis­trict.

Moore said she be­lieves her ex­pe­ri­ence and ed­u­ca­tion have served her well on the Lin­coln School Board.

“Work­ing in busi­ness gives you a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence in crit­i­cal think­ing, goal set­ting, col­lab­o­ra­tion and prob­lem solv­ing,” Moore said. “These are valu­able skills in work­ing with teams. This ex­pe­ri­ence has pre­pared me in strate­gic think­ing and vi­sion­ing both of which are valu­able as­sets in set­ting goals and poli­cies. When you work with a team that has a shared vi­sion and com­mon goals, it is a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to see what you can ac­com­plish.”

The role of a school board, Moore said, is to guide the dis­trict in es­tab­lish­ing and ap­prov­ing poli­cies.

“School Dis­tricts run most ef­fec­tively when gov­erned by poli­cies that em­power the Su­per­in­ten­dent, en­cour­age stu­dent achieve­ment and en­gage teach­ers and staff for ex­cel­lence,” she stated.

Suc­cess­ful or­ga­ni­za­tions cast a vi­sion, set goals and cre­ate a path and plan to achieve them. When this plan is writ­ten down, an or­ga­ni­za­tion is more likely to act on it and be ac­count­able to it, Moore said.

“In my ex­pe­ri­ence, work­ing on teams, this has been a plan that worked and was suc­cess­ful. I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to serve on the Board us­ing my skills, work­ing to­gether with the other mem­bers and the Su­per­in­ten­dent, to de­fine the road map to suc­cess and the path to achieve it.”

Moore said she has en­joyed serv­ing on the School Board and would like to con­tinue to serve in or­der to en­cour­age the suc­cess of Lin­coln stu­dents and staff.

“I am an alumni of Lin­coln Schools and my chil­dren at­tend school here, so I have a vested in­ter­est in the school’s con­tin­ued growth and progress. Lin­coln is a great com­mu­nity. The peo­ple here care for one an­other and the school dis­trict. Be­cause of the peo­ple and busi­nesses that in­vested in the school dis­trict and in me, I was pre­pared for the fu­ture when I grad­u­ated. Con­tin­u­ing to in­vest in our stu­dents and staff by giv­ing them the tools they need to pre­pare for their unique fu­tures is a com­pelling rea­son to con­tinue to serve on the board. I am ex­cited about the fu­ture of our school dis­trict and hope to have the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue to shape it,” Moore said.
