DeKALB COUNTY, Ala. — Chris Andrews of Geraldine, Ala., is announcing his candidacy on the Republican ticket for the Dekalb County Board of Education, District 2, in the 2020 election cycle.
Andrews is currently the pastor of Liberty Baptist Church in Crossville, Alabama. He is a retired educator, having taught high school English for twenty years at Geraldine High School and having served two years as an assistant principal at Collinsville Elementary School.
He lives in Geraldine with his wife of 32 years, Beverly Armstrong Andrews. He has two daughters, Stephanie Andrews Graben and Kayla Andrews.
“My goal in running for the District 2 position of the Dekalb County Board of Education is to simply be an advocate for the students in our school system. My family and I are graduates of the Dekalb County School System, and I want to lend my years of education experience to make sure future generations of Dekalb County students have the best possible education that our school system can provide.
We are blessed in this county with outstanding administrators, teachers, and school staff to give our students every chance to be productive in the classroom and in society. As we continue to hire and train gifted education personnel, we can carry on in giving the young people of Dekalb County the tools necessary to succeed in life. I desire to continue having a part in this noble goal through service on the Dekalb County Board of Education.
I look forward to meeting with the voters of District 2 and sharing with them my education experience and desires for our school system. I humbly ask for their support in the upcoming 2020 election.”
