Ronald A. "Rip" McCarver announces that he is proud to be a candidate for the Lebanon Special School District Board of Education in the August General Election.
McCarver has been a resident of Lebanon for many years, and he, his children and grandchildren were educated in the LSSD system. He is married to Phyllis McCarver, the father of five children and grandfather of six. He is a graduate of Wilson County High, has an Associate of Science in Accounting from Volunteer State Community College and a BBA from Middle Tennessee State University. He is retired from R.R. Donnelley Printing Company after 27 years of service and has had a short career in both real estate and insurance sales. McCarver is currently the associate minister at the Church of Christ in Bellwood.
"I have talked to parents, students, teachers and administrators who have concerns that they feel are not being addressed, so for this reason I believe that change is necessary, and I want to be that change agent," McCarver said. "As a Christian and as a leader in this community, I pledge to have an open ear to whatever affects the quality of education for each student in the LSSD system. I understand the need for quality teachers, materials, technology and all other resources to achieve greatness. Both my wife and my daughter are teachers, and I know the love and commitment that quality teachers bring to our educational system. I ask that if you are truly vested in a progressive future through education then please vote for me on August 4, 2016. I am not running for history, but for the future of Lebanon through education. Thank you for your vote."
