David Lamb has announced his candidacy for the Obion County School Board for the District 1 position to represent South Fulton. Lamb has been a resident of South Fulton for 25 years and has been a member of the South Fulton Police Department for the past 25 years, currently holding the rank of captain. As a police officer, he has taught the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program at South Fulton Elementary School for 17 years. Lamb, the son of Walter and Edith Lamb of Martin, is married to Janet R. Lamb. He has two daughters, Brandi McClure and Brandy Street, both of whom attended South Fulton High School, and a grandson, Dominic White, who will be an eighth-grader this coming school year. He graduated from Waterman High School in Waterman, Ill., and briefly attended the University of Tennessee at Martin. He has served on the board of directors of the Twin City Ambulance Service and the board of directors of the Knights of Columbus group home, as well as been a member of the Tennessee Training Officers Association and the Tennessee DARE Officers Association. He formerly served as West Tennessee regional vice president for DARE. His honors include being named Officer of the Year in 2000 and being the recipient of an appreciation award from the fifth-grade DARE class in 2008. If elected to the school board to represent the South Fulton area, Lamb said he hopes to work with other board members to see that each child in the Obion County School System continues to achieve a quality education and to ensure “no child will be left behind.” He said he also seeks to give the people of the South Fulton community and the teachers a voice on the board. “Having a child in the South Fulton school system and being a concerned citizen of this community, I will be accessible to the school’s faculty, staff, students and the people of the South Fulton area,” Lamb said. “My voice will carry your concerns, needs and viewpoints before the board. “I ask for your vote (in the Aug. 7 election). Your prayers and support are appreciated,” he added. Published in The Messenger 7.24.08
