District 13 Director

Theresa Davis, a resident of Fitzgerald/Ben Hill County, has been a member of the Ben Hill County school board since 2005. Theresa’s desire to see all children receive an adequate and equitable education prompted her to run for a school board position. Having two children of her own graduate from the Ben Hill County school system allowed her to see the parent side of the school system.  She wanted to see it from a policy-making side as well.

I feel strongly that children are our future. They need an equitable, solid education that gives them the skills they need to be productive citizens. Their educational setting should mirror the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity that makes up our wonderful communities. It’s our responsibility as school leaders to be sure every student has this educational setting.
