Long time Lufkin resident, President of the Lufkin School Board, and Chiropractor, Dr. Keven Ellis is seeking the District 9 Seat on the Texas State Board of Education. Dr. Ellis was in Sulphur Springs Monday night attending the Hopkins County Republican Party’s President’s Day event at the Regional Civic Center.
Dr. Ellis states that as a businessman, he understands the importance of a strong educational system in a community, and as a school board member, he hopes to impact and inspire the future. He says he is an advocate for conservative education principles for teachers, students, and families.
Teachers in Texas chose this profession for the love of teaching, not for the love of testing, according to Dr. Ellis. He says allowing teachers to do what they know is best for students will enable success in the classroom and for the student in life after the classroom. He says that Texans understand how best to educate Texas children without the influence of the federal government.
According to Sulphur Springs Superintendent Mike Lamb, Dr. Ellis has been endorsed by the current Texas School Board District 9 board member. Dr. Ellis is a candidate in the Republican Primary. Early voting begins Tuesday, February 16. March 1 is election day.
