Former Brumby Elementary School teacher Bill Scott has announced his candidacy as a Republican for the Post 4 Cobb Board of Education seat.

The post includes Northeast Cobb, including the Sprayberry and Kell high school districts, and portions of North Cobb. Angelucci, a Republican who is the current school board chairwoman, said earlier this month that she would not seek a second term.

Scott was the 1983 teacher of the year at Brumby and was a teacher and administrator for more than 20 years in the Cobb County School District, including principal at Chalker Elementary School in Kennesaw. 

Scott was born and raised in Ohio and earned a bachelor's degree from Kent State University. He earned a master's at Georgia State, an education specialist's degree from Jacksonville State University and a doctorate in education from Samford University.

During his career in Cobb County schools, Scott was named the 1992 Cobb Administrator of the Year, a member of Georgia’s Governor Leadership Team, 1998 Golden Apple Recipient and the 2002 Georgia PTA Outstanding Principal of the Year.

There will be a meet-and-greet campaign event for Scott on Feb. 4 from 7-9 p.m. in the clubhouse of the Chestnut Hill subdivision, 5186 Lupine Lane, Acworth.

In East Cobb's Post 6, Republican incumbent Scott Sweeney hasn't indicated whether he'll seek a second term. 

But at least one candidate has announced his intentions to run in the GOP primary in May. The Marietta Daily Journal reported that Kevin Nicholas, senior director for business development for Premiere Global, a Buckhead software firm, is launching his campaign

Post 6 includes the Walton and Wheeler high school districts and parts of the Smyrna-Vinings area.
