Vann recently retired from the Moore County school system where she worked as Moore County High Assistant Principal for six years. An educator with 28 years experience, she’s also worked in the local school system as an elementary school teacher, as well as in the Central Office, working with federal programs, specifically Title 1.

Vann says her wide and varied educational experience will help her make good decisions for the Moore County school system.

“I have found in working with so many areas of education that they are all different. The skill set I needed for each job was very different and what I thought I knew about the job, I quickly learned involved so much more than I had imagined. Each change in job was a learning experience where I did my best to grow and excel. If I am given the privilege to serve as Fifth District school board member, I will bring with me an attitude of learning and understanding. I will work to do what is right for the students and parents of the Fifth District and Moore County Schools.”

Tanya Syler Vann is a Moore County native and graduated from Moore County High School in 1981. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education as well as a Masters in Administration and Supervision, both from Middle Tennessee State University.

School Board Members will be voted on in the Thursday, August 6 General Election. The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday, July 7. •
