District 4- Dixon & Shepherd
Stand for Children Tennessee endorses Rhonda Dixon & Anna Shepherd
for Metro Nashville School Board District 4
Why Stand for Children Endorses Rhonda and Anna- Voters in District 4 have two good options in Rhonda Dixon and Anna Shepherd; at this time, Stand members found reasons to support both.
Rhonda Dixon impressed us greatly during the candidate forum and during our interview. She is rarely the loudest voice in the room, but she speaks with clarity and conviction. Through her own personal story, she understands the struggle that parents face in finding a school that meets their child’s unique needs. As a tenacious parent and grandparent, she has found success for her two grandchildren within MNPS schools. She would be a smart, common sense voice for improving the odds for Nashville students.
Anna Shepherd currently serves as the board’s Vice Chair and would bring valuable experience to the Director of Schools search. Her deep knowledge of issues important to Stand and her openness to being a leader in improving board policy impressed us during our interview. We were particularly interested in her focus on improving MNPS middle schools. Shepherd would be a positive force for change in the next board.
