My name is Bob Brackett. I am a current board member representing the Nebo District since 2010-present. I am a graduate of Burke County School System. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education with a concentration in Biology from Western Carolina University in 1966. I began my teaching career at Marion High School (1966-1972), teaching Biology and coaching football, wrestling, and track. My career continued at McDowell High School until my retirement. I served as a County Commissioner (1998-2002) serving as Vice-Chair (2000-2002). I have also served as Chairman of the Mental Health Board representing Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, and McDowell Counties.
The priority of my service to the students and teachers of McDowell County is to see academic proficiency throughout our schools. I will continue to work to make sure we have the resources needed to serve our teachers and students effectively.
