clarence thacker board member

As a lifelong resident of Osceola County, I am committed to helping make our county a better place to live and raise our families.    My commitment to our community is evidenced by a life time of volunteer community service.   My wife and I are multi-generational products of the Osceola County School System.   Our three children also graduated from our public schools and pursued higher education after graduation.     The educational system is the bedrock of the community.   It is a mirror image of the community and a reflection of the future of a community.   We owe it to our families and our future generations to provide educational resources and opportunities to challenge each student to perform at their highest potential.  We owe it to our professional educators and staff to ensure a stable and safe environment to work, and to provide them with the tools, technology and resources they need for their professional growth and to motivate and prepare our students to reach their potential.  They also deserve our respect and appreciation for working in one of the toughest and most thankless jobs in our community.  I envision an educational system that will foster high quality job growth in our community and provide economic opportunities to our children, thus they can remain here and raise the next generation of Osceola County residents.  I have a strong business background with over 25 years of experience in Operational Management in one of the largest educational publishers in the world. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to help guide the School District through the tight financial constraints that we will continue to face in the near future.   I understand how to maximize the use of every dollar to benefit our students and staff.  I would be honored to represent you as the District 4 representative on the Osceola County School Board.   I need your vote and support to serve.


Thank You,

Clarence Thacker
