|Charles L. “Donnie” Noles is announcing his candidacy for the Obion County School Board, District 2. |
He and his wife, Fonda (Kirk) Noles, and their four children — Ben, Heath, Tanner and Natalie — have resided in the Woodland Mills area of Obion County for the past 19 years.
Ben and Heath graduated from Obion County Central High School, where Tanner will be a senior and Natalie will be a sophomore in the fall.
Noles holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Murray (Ky.) State University. Upon completion of his master’s degree, he taught in the Special Education Department at Murray State for seven years. He worked for 17 years with the Tennessee Department of Correction and served as warden at three different West Tennessee correctional facilities during his tenure with the state.
Noles is currently the complex human resources manager at Tyson Foods Inc. in Union City and soon will complete his 13th year with Tyson.
He and his family are all active members of Woodland Mills First Baptist Church, where Noles currently serves as assistant Sunday School director.
He coached Little League baseball at Woodland Mills for several years and currently serves as president of the Runnin’ Rebels Booster Club at OCCHS.
Noles said if elected to the school board, he will apply his conservative Christian values to ensure that every student is afforded an opportunity to obtain a free, quality education that will prepare them for their individual calling in life.
Noles believes “state and federal government exercise too much control over our school system and that the historical revisionists are doing their best to rewrite our nation’s history and further obscure the truths and freedoms upon which our great nation was founded.”
“It’s time that we take our schools back and do what is best for our children. I believe in personal accountability for students, faculty and parents/guardians as it relates to performance and moral conduct,” he continued. “If elected, I will do my very best to honorably represent the parents and students of District 2 on the Obion County School Board. Please consider me as you exercise your freedom to vote on Election Day and whisper up a prayer for all of our service men and women who are fighting to ensure you continue to enjoy this freedom.”
