To the editor:

Vote for Sheridan Chester for Lee County School Board District 7. Make sure you vote for Sheridan in the Aug. 20 Primary. If she gets 50% of the vote plus one then she is on the school board.

Sheridan Chester is a master educator, a dedicated public servant who has been teaching the children of Lee County for 23 years, as a middle school substitute teacher, the last two years teaching GED. Chester was twice named “Teacher of the Year for Middle School,” receiving the Silver Apple Award, and was the first substitute teacher in Lee County to be nominated for a Golden Apple Award.

Her vision is simple: empower teachers, engage parents, and ensure every student has access to a high-quality education. She believes in safe, supportive learning environments, innovative educational practices, and transparent communication with the community.

Sheridan Chester is excellently qualified to serve on the School Board. She graduated magna cum laude from John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

She has served her community as mentor for Dress for Success, Footsteps to the Future, and the African Caribbean American Center (AFCAAM). She has worked in the State Attorney’s Office advocating for survivors of domestic violence, and was twice named Woman of the Year, Royal Palms Chapter, American Businesswomen’s Association.

Sheridan Chester’s passion for community and education is unmistakable. The Lee County School Board needs at least one representative who has taught in our schools. She knows what our students and families need and is superbly prepared to deliver.
