District 7- Miska Clay Bibbs
Stand for Children Tennessee endorses Miska Clay Bibbs for Shelby County School Board District 7
Bio- Miska is currently the Director of Community Engagement for Green Dot Public Schools. She works every day toward leaving a legacy of service and servant leadership. She is a native Memphian who has had the opportunity to live in Washington DC and Virginia. After graduating from Hampton University, Bibbs decided to follow her passion and come home to help manage a congressional campaign for Harold Ford, Jr. She worked for the congressional office for several years. It was there she learned the importance of education advocacy, community development and that we all deserve to have our voice heard. She is the proud mother of one son, Langston, who is 12 years old.

Why I Stand for Children- Throughout history, many people have participated in rallies and sit-ins in order to take a stand on issues of equality. At this moment in history, it is my turn to take a seat (on the Shelby County School Board) in order to rally for those that are often voiceless, so that we may collectively stand for children and the equality of education.
Why Stand for Children Endorses Miska- Miska Bibbs impressed our endorsement committee with her passion and commitment to the children of our community. As a former administrator for the school system, she understands the challenges the administration faces. Miska knows that the school board has to be accountable to the community and has great experience in building partnerships and communicating education opportunities and challenges with the public. Although she is unopposed, she demonstrated this commitment to accountability by fully participating in our endorsement process and showing her readiness and willingness to serve all the children of our county. Miska is going to be our Shelby County School Board member for District 7, and we support her fully as she takes this opportunity during the election cycle to introduce herself and connect with the citizens of District 7.
