Sam Cox has declared his intent to campaign for Washington County School District Superintendent.

“I would like to take a moment to introduce myself to you, the residents of Washington County. As a third-generation Washington County educator, I have served in this district since 2005 as a teacher, coach, and administrator,” Cox said. “My wife of 28 years, Kristi Davis Cox, has also been a Washington County educator since 2000. I have three children who attend(ed) Chipley High School: Koltin, a 2019 graduate, Davis, a graduating senior and Kadin, a sophomore.”

Cox said in light of these things, he has a “vested interest in the success of our students and district.”

“I feel I can most effectively expand my sphere of influence and positive impact on the lives of our students through the position of superintendent,” Cox said. “As superintendent my priorities include strengthened leadership both at school and district levels, more competitive benefits and insurance for all district employees, improved ADA access at all district facilities, the recruitment of high performing teachers, retaining high performing veteran teachers, implementation of the Guardian program, the improvement and advancement of extracurricular activities for students and the reintroduction of alternative education.”

Cox said a vote for him means the “shared commitment to student success, staff support and school safety.”

“Join me at the polls on August 20, where together we can put the Washington County School District back in the hands of Washington County,” he said.
