NC VALUES COALITION ENDORSES THERESA KNIGHT FOR MOORESVILLE GRADED SCHOOL DISTRICT
North Carolina Values Coalition endorsed Theresa Knight for election to the Mooresville Graded School District.
“We are excited about Theresa Knight’s candidacy to the Mooresville Graded School District because we believe she will put quality, unbiased education first and honor parental rights,” said NC Values Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald. “At a time when school boards across North Carolina are putting political agendas over education, we need to pay attention to school board races and make informed, careful decisions about candidates. NC Values enthusiastically endorses Theresa Knight.”
Because of the significance public education has on future generations and how it’s shaping ideas and values of our culture, NC Values started endorsing school board candidates last year, held school board candidate trainings and Mama Bear Workshops. This August NC Values held Mama Bear workshops in Hickory and Greensboro to teach the public about indoctrination in schools, school choice, and parental rights. NC Values also partners with iVoterGuide, a digital voting guide which provides voters a detailed candidate survey and ratings. This year iVoterGuide is evaluating Mooresville Graded School District, Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District, and Roanoke Rapids School District.
“Our culture is being shaped by the activism in public education, and social conservatives and Christians have a duty to pay attention to their local school boards. NC Values will be endorsing heavily in the 2024 school board elections. We look forward to Theresa Knight being elected to the Mooresville Graded School District this November and encourage our supporters in Iredell County to give her their full support.”
