Vanessa Agee, a nearly three-decades-long Summit County resident, announced her bid for a Summit School District Board of Education seat in the November election. 

Agee currently serves as communications director for the town of Frisco, a position she has held since 2013. Her 14-year-old daughter has been in the Summit School District since kindergarten, which Agee described as a “positive” experience, according to a candidate statement sent to the Summit Daily News.

Agee said she is running to support academic opportunity and excellence, promote compassion in education, retain and recruit teachers, support staff and leadership, and ensure school funding is reliable, among other priorities. 

In her statement, Agee said she has “long admired the exceptional ability that it takes to tackle one of the most fundamentally important jobs, teaching our children. I want to be a part of supporting that legacy of education and enhancing schools for all students.”

In total, four board seats are up for election this November, with eight candidates announced so far.
