Local News

HENRY COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — The Henry County Superintendent’s race is gearing up to be a fight to the finish.

All three candidates running for the position have different ideas to bring to Henry County and hope to make the cut.

Dr. Dennis Brand hopes to bring in a one-to-one teaching initiative and bring the ROTC program back to Henry County Schools.

“This is my 30th year with Henry County Schools,” Brand said. “I have a vested interest in the students of Henry County Schools. Therefore, I feel like I would do a good job as a superintendent.”

He planned to spend election day with his family and friends.

Meanwhile, Lori Parker Beasley has been campaigning door to door, promoting her community based and hardworking plan.

“I am a hard worker and a roll up my sleeves type person, and I plan to do that each and every day if elected as superintendent,” Beasley said.

Beasley will also be spending Nov. 3 with her family and friends at her parents house where she grew up.

Last but not least is Darius McKay, who hopes to designate a plan to work with all students and leave politics out of the education world.

“You know, I’m an educator and I have a tremendous passion and love for students,” McKay said. “That’s in the forefront of my message. You know, we’re going to build relationships with our parents but most importantly we’re going to make connections with our students.”

McKay hopes to be with his loved ones and supporters on election Tuesday.

All three are looking forward to Nov. 3 and will be standing by for election results.
