Swan seeks re-election as Lamar superintendent

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.
