Bridgett Hopkins has announced her candidacy for the Fayetteville City School Board on November 3 for the general election. In making her announcement, Hopkins  quoted Marian Wright Edelman, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.”

Bridgett Hopkins has been a resident of the Fayetteville community all of her life. She said she has been a part of the Fayetteville City School’s family for many years, adding, “as they stood by her boys (Fitzgerald and Nicholas) during the start of their basketball careers as Tigers.”

“Providing a strong educational foundation for the students in this community is an important part of what makes Fayetteville what it is. These students are our future leaders and citizens. Therefore, we have to provide them with the best education to set the foundation for their future,” says Hopkins.

Hopkins says she is very enthusiastic about running for a position on the Fayetteville City School Board, because of what it represents. She believes it represents the responsibility of making the right choices for the best interests of the students.

Hopkins concluded by saying, “If you believe in the success of our future leaders and citizens of Fayetteville, I am asking for your vote on November 3.”
