Lamar County School Superintendent Glenn Swan has officially kicked off his re-election campaign. Swan met with supporters at Memorial Park in Purvis this afternoon.
He's seeking a third term as head of Lamar County schools. He says his long-range strategic plan and an ongoing $43 million building campaign have improved the district.
"There's a lot of work to be done, a lot of work has been done and I've enjoyed being in a leadership position these past 8 years," Swan said. "I appreciate everything the community has done for our school district, the support they've given me," he said.
If re-elected, Swan hopes to establish Jr. R.O.T.C. programs and expand Vo-Tech programs at the district's high schools.
He'll face fellow Republican Ben Burnett in the August primary.
