*KJAS News allows a political candidate for local office the opportunity to make a political statement. The following is that of Bruce Bevil, candidate seeking election to Jasper Independent School District Board of Trustees:
My name is Bruce Bevil and I am a candidate for Jasper Independent School District Board. Along with my entire family, I am a proud Jasper High Alumni; my wife Monica and I have two children, Ariyah a 2017 graduate and Zion a future graduate with the Class of 2028. I have witnessed the changes within the district first hand and want to be a part of the board to bring exceptional change. Often, I have felt unheard when addressing issues my children were faced with and I will advocate for those who feel the same by being a listening ear for parents, staff and students and a voice for those who need help solving issues.
Partnering together with other board members we can share knowledge to address the educational and social economic needs of the students as well as the needs to ensure that staff have the training, supplies, equipment, and support to do their jobs efficiently. My main goal will be fostering and strengthening relationships with students, parents, and district staff to make Jasper ISD great. I would appreciate your support by voting Bruce Bevil on May 1, 2021!!!
