Jacksonville board member re-elected to state post

Sue Jones, a member of the Jacksonville Board of Education, has been re-elected as leader of the Alabama Association of School Boards sixth district.

She's one of nine members of AASB's Board of Directors, which governs the association. Jones sits on the bylaws and Teacher of the Year selection committees and has presented at AASB's summer conference.

Jones was first elected to the Jacksonville school board in 2000 and won re-election in 2004. She retired as a teacher in Jacksonville after 27 years in the classroom. She now also works as a health education consultant.

"Sue has proven her deep commitment to serving Alabama's schoolchildren, her community and District 6," said Sally Howell, executive director of AASB. "She has been a true asset to the association's leadership team, and I look forward to continuing to work with her."

District 6 includes the city school boards of Anniston, Attalla, Fort Payne, Gadsden, Jacksonville, Oxford, Pell City, Piedmont, Sylacauga and Talladega and the county boards in Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne, DeKalb, Etowah, St. Clair and Talladega.
