To the editor:
I am proud to support Mary June Brunker for Harrison County School Board, 2nd division. I have known Mary June for over 30 years, first as a friend and fellow teacher at Eastside, then as the parent of a child in her classroom, both at Eastside and later at HCMS.
Watching Mary June teach next door to me was always exciting because she put all she had into her teaching and gave so much of herself to her students. She pushed them to excel the same way she pushed herself to excel day in and day out, in whatever she was doing. And she continues to put the students first and to strive for excellence as a professor at Licking Valley Campus of Maysville Community College and through the Teacher Education Program for Midway College. She has been and continues to be one of the students’ favorite teachers whether at the elementary, middle school or college level, one they remember long after they leave the hallowed halls of learning.
Mary June believes in continuous learning for herself and others throughout life. She loves to read and travel and learn new things. She wants to serve our community by continuing to serve on the Harrison County Board of Education. I believe we can trust Mary June with our most precious blessing - our children and grandchildren. She will put the kids of Harrison County first where they belong.
Please join me in voting for Mary June Brunker on Nov. 2.
