Hello Chenango Forks! My name is Jon Scofield, and I’m honored to be running for a seat on the Board of Education. I’ve been a part of the Forks community since my family moved into the district in 2015, and I have loved every minute of it. I currently have three children who attend school in the district (Elias – 6th grade, Samuel – 4th grade and Molly – 2nd grade) and my wife is a CF graduate herself. Our experiences with Chenango Forks School District, as well as the community as whole, have been nothing short of phenomenal and that is one of the main reasons that I am running for the Board of Education. The genuine care for the students and passion for education that I have seen from the teachers, administrators, and other board members is unlike anything I could ever imagine. In my experience coaching youth baseball and football, I have had the privilege of getting to know the amazing people that make up this community, and I look forward to being an advocate for them.
My qualifications include a degree in Elementary Education, a minor in Family Studies, and a Masters in Business Administration. I’ve worked in the public school system as a teacher, the private education system as an administrator, as well as 8 years in Finance and Business Management at Lockheed Martin. In 2017 I resigned from Lockheed Martin to pursue a career in full-time pastoral ministry, and I currently serve as the Operations Pastor at New Life Ministries in Endicott.
I am running for this position because I love this community and this school district, and I stand behind the emphasis that Chenango Forks puts on excellence. I believe that this district continues to raise the bar for the public school system, and I would like to be a part of that. I promise that if I’m elected, my first priority will be to make sure that students, teachers, and families voices are heard and spoken for.
I would love your vote and your endorsement.
See you at the polls on May 17th!
