Vigo County resident Leah Myers has announced her intent to run for the Vigo County School Corp. board of trustees in the November general election.

Myers plans to run in District 1 (Harrison Township), which has two seats up for election this November. Those seats are currently held by School Board members Mel Burks and Jackie Lower.

The other seat up for election is District 3, currently held by School Board President Paul Lockhart.

Filing for Vigo County School Board starts July 27 and ends at noon Aug. 26.

In a news release, Myers states, “I want people in Vigo County to know that there will be a new name on the ballot this November for them to choose in representing them on the Vigo County School Board ... one who will listen to the concerns of parents, teachers, and taxpayers, and bring those concerns to light.” Her goals include providing better transparency on the school corporation’s business dealings.

An official website is currently being developed. For more information, contact Myers by email
