Hello, my name is Eugean Garner and I am seeking re- election as your District 7 School Board Member. I’m asking for your support to continue my work to improve our Parish schools.

My wife of 30 years, Delana Sampey Garner and I have two amazing children, Cameron and Courtney, both of whom attended Natchitoches Parish schools. After graduating from Lakeview High School, my son, Cameron, went on to Louisiana Tech where he graduated with an engineering degree. My daughter, Courtney, has a rewarding career with the US Postal Service, also after graduating from Lakeview High School.

I have devoted almost 40 years of my life working in and for the Natchitoches Parish School System. In the last 4 years as a school board member, I am proud of the many accomplishments I’ve achieved: securing 7.2 million dollars in school improvements, maintaining balanced school system budgets in all four years, and improving District 7schools’ test scores, to name a few.

I pledge that I will continue to improve our school campuses so our students will have a safe and enriching educational experience. I will continue to fight, where possible, to keep our community schools open for the educational benefit of our rural areas. I also pledge to continue to work closely with our other school board members, administrators, faculty and staffs to ensure our schools have all the proper tools they need to provide the best educational experience possible for our children.

In closing, it has been my honor to serve as your District 7 School Board member for the past 4 years, and I am asking for the opportunity to continue to do so. I pray that God will continue to guide me to be a better public servant. Please remember to go vote on November 6th to help me to continue my quest to improve our Parish school system.

Thank you and God bless,
Eugean Garner
