My husband, Jim, and I have lived in Bartlett since 1978. We moved here because of the high standards of the Bartlett and Shelby County Schools. We wanted our children to benefit from that quality of education. I want the standards and quality of our schools to continue to grow, and I feel that can be accomplished in a system that is smaller and where there is local control. Our schools shape everything around them – the children, the homes, the family and the community.
