"Excellence in Education. Transparent and Responsible Budget"
As a Fort Mill resident and parent of children who currently attend and have graduated from Fort Mill schools, I hope to be an integral part of continuing the success of our district. Fort Mill schools enjoy an impeccable reputation despite record growth. Our expanding population creates problems: enrollment freezes, redistricting attendance zones, building new schools and budget constraints, to name a few. I have lived through all of these issues with my children and have learned how to create solutions from these problems. As the PTO President of a newly built elementary school and a founding member of the Fort Mill Gridiron Club, I know how to think outside the box to provide success for our students. As a business owner, I am familiar with budgets and the required planning that will ensure financial security.
"Michele Branning is a tireless and passionate volunteer for local public education and has demonstrated her willingness to get involved from the time her family moved to South Carolina. She is a wise and experienced businesswoman with expertise in financial management and customer service. These skills would transfer easily to the school board setting and quickly make Michele an asset to the board. The Fort Mill community would be fortunate to have her as their advocate on the board. Vote for Michele Branning for FM School District 4 Trustee!" - Rachel Gilmore, Past PTA President
