AllOnGeorgia recently reached out to Chattooga County Board of Education member Brad Hayes for a Q & A. What have you learned since becoming a BOE member?. Since I was elected in November 2018, I have worked with two school superintendents and soon to be eight school board members. Every superintendent and every school board member was beneficial and talented in various areas. I learned how to listen, observe, and speak up. I learned that I was an elected, public official, and my sole purpose was to represent each student, teacher, staff member, administrator, parent, and citizen. I have also learned that no public official can please everyone, but I try to follow the advice of our late.
