-A A +A

 Kyle Quincey  has announced his intent to seek the District 2 seat on the Levy County School Board.

In an announcement released last week, Quincey wrote, 

“My name is Kyle Quincey, and I am campaigning for the district 2 seat on the Levy County School Board.  I believe that I have the unique blend of education, experience and investment that make me a highly qualified candidate to serve on our School Board. 

“I am a lifelong resident of Levy County and a 1989 graduate of Chiefland High School.  After high school, I earned an Associate of Arts degree from Santa Fe Community College.

“After earning my AA degree, I transferred to Florida State University where I earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in exceptional student education. 

 “When I completed my education, I accepted a job teaching ESE at Bronson Middle/High School.  During my eight and a half years as a teacher, I was able to be involved in many aspects of the school ranging from administrative duties to athletics.  I was fortunate enough to work under several administrators who trusted me to serve as a substitute administrator in the event of their absence.  

“While at BHS, I continued my education by taking multiple classes towards a certification in educational leadership.   During my time at BHS, I also served as middle school baseball coach.  These opportunities at BHS give me a very in-depth view of what it takes for a school to function properly from the administration to the classroom to the athletic programs.

“After eight and a half years of working with some very talented and wonderful people at BHS, I was given the opportunity to follow in my father, Jack Quincey’s, footsteps. 

“ I am currently an insurance agent at Nature Coast Insurance in Williston.  I have also been blessed to serve as a trustee at Central FL Electric Cooperative for the past seven years where I currently serve as vice president.  The experience gained by serving on this board is incredible. 

“As a trustee, it is my responsibility to approve a multi-million dollar budget and make planning decisions that will guarantee that CFEC will continue to provide reliable service to all its customers. I also have to work in conjunction with CFEC staff and eight other board members to insure our service and financial goals are met.

“I have been married to my wonderful wife, Valerie, for the past 15 years and God has blessed us with two wonderful children.  Grant is 9 years old and a third grader at Chiefland Elementary.  Grace is 7 years old and in first grade at CES. 

“Our family is a member of Pine Grove Baptist Church where I serve as an adult Sunday school teacher.  Grant and Grace are very active in the Chiefland Area Athletic Association where Valerie and I have had the opportunity to coach them.

“My greatest investment is my family and specifically Grant and Grace.  Through my 9 years of experience in education, I understand what it takes for a school system to function efficiently and effectively.  I want to use my knowledge and experience to insure that your greatest investment is protected.  My family and I are very excited about the future and we look forward to meeting you and your family during this campaign season.”
