MURFREESBORO, TN--- Murfreesboro City School Board Member Amanda Moore announces her candidacy for re-election to the school board in the August 4 city-wide, at-large election.
“The school board has faced unprecedented challenges during my term,” Moore said. “We tragically lost our Director of Schools, hired a new Director of Schools, rezoned to deal with relentless growth, and navigated a global pandemic. Through all these difficult decisions, I have worked hard to be transparent, accessible, and fair.”
During her tenure on the City School Board, Moore has served as a Trustee of the Sick Leave Bank, as the Board representative on the Family Resource Center Advisory Board, and as a member of the School Naming Committee. She was recently appointed to be the Board representative on the Charter School Review Team.
Moore enjoys unanimous support for her re-election from the other members of the Murfreesboro City School Board.
Moore has the support of many teachers, staff, and parents in the district as well. “Amanda Moore has brought experience, reason, and a listening ear to the MCS board,” said Stephanie Roach, an MCS parent, City Schools Foundation board member, and educator. “She is as dedicated as she is fair in her approach to our community’s children, parents, teachers, and administrators. If you want a commonsense approach to local school governance, look no further than Ms. Moore.”
Moore is an attorney and the co-founder of the Tennessee Center for Estate and Elder Law, PLLC, a Murfreesboro law firm. She has taught at Vanderbilt Law School, MTSU, and Morehead State University. She serves on the advisory group of the Discovery Guild at the Discovery Center and is a founding member of the Middle Tennessee Lawyer’s Association for Women. She is a member of the League of Women Voters, the Murfreesboro Branch of the NAACP, RISE Rutherford, Friends of Linebaugh Library, and the Rutherford-Cannon County Bar Association. She attends St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
The daughter of public-school teachers, Moore is married to Jason Vance, a librarian at MTSU. They have two children: Henry, a senior at Oakland High School, and Ada, a sophomore at Central Magnet School. Moore is a graduate of Western Kentucky University and Yale Law School.
The election to fill three seats on the Murfreesboro City School Board is August 4. Moore can be found on Facebook: facebook.com/Moore4CitySchools.
