Mollie Cunningham serves on the Lake County School Board, representing District 4.
Prior to my retirement, I worked for Lake County Schools for 35 years. My vast experience makes me keenly aware of the skills necessary to be an effective school board member.
During my time as an administrator in Lake County, I served on various committees, including a committee to hire a superintendent and other upper-level administrative personnel. I worked on committees to revise the Student Code of Conduct and choose textbooks. I have also served on the Board of Directors for Cornerstone Hospice and the Central Florida YMCA.
My platform prioritizes Lake County Schools employee compensation as well as facilitating more input from the community through quarterly town hall meetings. I want to provide every stakeholder in Lake County with a voice at the table because providing education to children is one of society’s greatest responsibilities. Thank you for your support!
"I am very humbled by the experience of having run for something and been elected and I'm so looking forward to being a part of this group. I think we, along with the superintendent, will be able to do some really good things for all the stakeholders here in Lake County."
"I have ideas that I feel will benefit the district and raise Lake County Schools to another level. I’ll implement ideas to ensure all students are learning. Unless you devise a plan that includes all children, then you’re not going to be successful."
"I think the people who work in the schools are very important. It causes me concern when teachers, or any Lake County School employee...do not get raises of any kind. As you know, when you go to Publix, they don't ask you where you work or did you get a raise this year. Chicken has gone up and you pay the same prices as everyone else...The best way to retain good people is to pay them."
