Mary Ellen is honored to be the only Henderson County candidate for school board to earn the endorsement of the NC Chapter of Sierra Club.

Access to healthy food and transportation, clean water, and a safe learning environment are extremely important for Henderson County students’ success!

Our school system is the biggest employer in our county and serves more than 13,500 students. Ensuring that everyone in our schools has their needs met in this way touches a significant swath of our community. Raising the next generation to be aware of the interconnectedness of our world and the role we all play individually and as part of a community helps set our society up for success in a world already inheriting substantial environmental challenges.
