Kearney School Board President Undecided For Re-Election


The deadline for any current office holder to run for re-election is Tuesday, and so far there are two members of the Kearney School Board who have not turned in their paperwork to run again.

President Julia Agard and member Doug McCarty have not filed yet, and Agard says she's not sure if she will run again.

"I thought at first, at the beginning, this would definitely be my last term on the board. As the time draws closer to make that decision, it's been a hard position," said Agard.

Agard has had several people in the community encourage her to stay on the board. But if she doesn't run, she knows the type of person she wants to run for the position.

"It's important to remember we're here because we are responsible for providing education for our students," said Agard.

Agard says she knows several people in Kearney who would be a good replacement for her.
