Quincey announces for school post

-A A +A

My name is Kyle Quincey, and I am campaigning for the District 2 seat on the Levy County School Board.  I believe that I have the unique blend of education, experience, and investment that make me a highly qualified candidate to serve on our School Board.  
I am a lifelong resident of Levy County, and a 1989 graduate of Chiefland High School.  After high school, I earned an Associate of Arts degree from Santa Fe Community College.  After earning my AA degree, I transferred to Florida State University where I earned a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in exceptional student education.  When I completed my education, I accepted a job teaching ESE at Bronson Middle/High School.  During my eight and a half years as a teacher, I was able to be involved in many aspects of the school ranging from administrative duties to athletics.  I was fortunate enough to work under several administrators who trusted me to serve as a substitute administrator in the event of their absence.  
While at BHS, I continued my education by taking multiple classes towards a certification in educational leadership.   During my time at BHS, I also served as middle school baseball coach.  These opportunities at BHS give me a very in-depth view of what it takes for a school to function properly from the administration to the classroom to the athletic programs.
After eight and a half years of working with
some very talented and wonderful people at BHS, I was given the opportunity to follow in my father, Jack Quincey’s, footsteps.  I am currently an insurance agent at Nature Coast Insurance in Williston.  I have also been blessed to serve as a trustee at Central Florida Electric Cooperative for the past seven years where I currently serve as vice president.  The experience gained by serving on this board is incredible.  As a trustee, it is my responsibility to approve a multi-million dollar budget and make planning decisions that will guarantee that CFEC will continue to provide reliable service to all its customers. I also have to work in conjunction with CFEC staff and eight other board members to insure our service and financial goals are met.
    I have been married to my wonderful wife, Valerie, for the past 15 years, and God has blessed us with two wonderful children.  Grant is nine years old and a third grader at Chiefland Elementary.  Grace is seven years old and in first grade at CES.  Our family is a member of Pine Grove Baptist Church where I serve as an adult Sunday school teacher.  Grant and Grace are very active in the Chiefland Area Athletic Association where Valerie and I have had the opportunity to coach them.  My greatest investment is my family and specifically Grant and Grace.  
Through my nine years of experience in education, I understand what it takes for a school system to function efficiently and effectively.  I want to use my knowledge and experience to insure that your greatest investment is protected.  My family and I are very excited about the future, and we look forward to meeting you and your family during this campaign season.   
I would love to hear from you and can be reached at 210-3849 or by email at votequincey@yahoo.com  Thank you in advance for your support.
