As a former chairwoman of the Fayette County Board of Education, I am writing to support the naming of the new high school after John D. Price.
I had the privilege and honor to do volunteer work with him for over 20 years. John was a tireless advocate for public education. Throughout the years, he volunteered in our schools in many different capacities, including serving as a mentor for high school students through the Experienced-Based Career Education program; serving on the Equity Committee; being a president of the 16th District PTA, and serving as a parent representative on the school-based decision-making council at his daughter’s school.
As a member of the school board, John made every decision based on what was best for students.
I encourage the Fayette County Board of Education members to name the new high school after John D. Price.
