And I admit her credentials are impressive. I haven’t formally reached out to her yet, but she has a long list of community service boards and involvement.

Morgan writes, via the Chalkboard:

I wasn’t able to interview at-large candidate Sandra Alexander in time for the Saturday compilation we had on filings for the Guilford County Board of Education, Board of Commissioners and other public offices. However, Alexander faxed me some information about her this week and I wanted to share it.Alexander, a former English professor at N.C. A&T State University is the owner/CEO of Greensboro Scenic Tours, a local sightseeing tour and transportation business. Her platform includes: fiscal responsibility, parental involvement, innovative educational programming and performance accountability/teacher support. Sound familiar?Alexander formerly served on the board of directors for the Greensboro YWCA and North Carolina Writer’s Network. She is a current participant in Impact Greensboro and member of the board of trustees for Triad Stage.

Frequent Chalkboard commenter David Colin calls Alexander:

This sounds like a first class education Achiever… We would have to be idiots to pass this lady up.

  1. I have Sandy for a long time – since my adjunct prof days at A&T. She’s a class act, a published author, a DEEPLY concerned educator with a long history of teaching minority young folks and a concomitant deep and active concern for Greensboro. In addition, she’s an entrepreneur. She’s got that balance of real world and theory that’s almost impossible to find. Besides, I sit next to her at IMPACT meetings (smile).

  2. Sue,

    But….., I hope you’re endorsing EC Huey in the at-large race.

  3. What I’m saying is that we are lucky to have extremely talented and caring people running in this at-large race for school board. It’s like trying to pick your favorite ice cream flavor when you like them all. The county is indeed fortunate to have such candidates.

  4. The Rhino reports that Alexander is a long-term admirer of Dot Kearns and feels the new superintendant should be someone very like Grier.
