Edwards will not seek third term on Waynesboro School Board

Waynesboro School Board member Brian Edwards announced today that he will not seek a third term to the At-Large seat on the Board.

“This was a difficult decision as working for Waynesboro’s students for the past eight years has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  However, with a growing number of personal and professional obligations, I determined I will not be able to give the same level of commitment to Waynesboro Public Schools as in the past,” Edwards said.

Edwards endorsed Linda Schorsch Jones, who announced last week her intention to seek the seat, which will be contested in the May city elections.

“Our community is very fortunate to have dedicated citizens like Mrs. Jones, who are concerned for the welfare of all Waynesboro’s student. I believe Mrs. Jones would serve the community well. Therefore, I wholeheartedly endorse Mrs. Linda Jones in her bid for the school board seat I currently hold,” Edwards said.

Edwards also endorsed incumbent Board members Doug Norcross and Dr. Melinda Ferguson for re-election in May.

“In their respective tenures on the School Board, they have worked tirelessly for our students,” Edwards said.
