Malcolm “Pep” White, the District 9 representative on the Accomack County School Board, has filed for re-election in the Nov. 7 general election.
“I bring a committed voice for the people of District 9,” said White, who was born and raised in Accomack County.
“During my first term, it started as a learning experience to understand the overall responsibility of school board membership.”
White said he looks forward to continuing to apply his “knowledge, experience, and voice for the district.”
White is a graduate of Arcadia High School and his wife, Sandra, graduated from Nandua High School.
Both of their children are Nandua graduates.
White said he “has a wealth of familiarity with both schools’ needs.” White said he “is committed to assisting Accomack County to provide a rigorous education for our students so that they become productive citizens.”
White said giving back to the local community is a priority for him and is one factor in his decision to seek re-election.
“I have a heart for the county, including its parents, students, teach- ers, all staff, and administrators. Every person connected to our school district is important,” said White.
White holds degrees in business ad- ministration and information technology from Eastern Shore Community College, where he has been employed for 21 years.
A military veteran, he said, “I served my country, and my goal is to continue serving my community and District 9 by supporting the county’s educational goals and objectives. Through my military career, I learned the value of commitment and hard work.”
White said his mantra as he seeks re-election is “Aim high,” and he said he puts the slogan into practice daily as a family man, employee, and community representative.
White said providing high-quality public service remains a priority for him.
He said he is known for his ability to lead problem solving and respond with working solutions.
“My formal education in business administration and information technology has prepared me to be a well-informed, responsible, and influential candidate for school board’s District 9,” said White.
