Jonathan Pack is running for the Anderson School District One Board of Trustees Area 1 seat. He is a product of Anderson District 1. He graduated from Anderson University with a Bachelor of Science in Business with a focus in Accounting. He also has a Masters in Accounting from Appalachian State University. He currently works as an Audit Supervisor for TD Bank in Greenville, SC.
Jonathan and his wife Shandi have one daughter: Katherine – age 2. They reside in the Powdersville community of Anderson County. Jonathan enjoys farming, golfing, spending time with his family, and volunteering in the district and at his church.
Jonathan has deep roots in Anderson District One, where his late grandfather Joe Pack served on the Anderson School District One Board of Trustees for 44 years. His mother, Lana Pack, is a retired teacher with over 30 years of service in Anderson District One. His sister, Meagan Lundeen, is also currently a teacher at Cedar Grove Elementary.
“My grandfather loved serving Anderson One. He always did what was best for the students and supported the district employees. He believed that everyone should play a part in education. My grandfather did a great job of listening to the members of this community and I hope to continue this legacy as a school board trustee.”
“I also believe that I can provide a unique perspective to the school board as someone who has seen and heard many of the issues that the school district faces on a daily basis.”
If elected, Jonathan said that he will ensure that the community and the employees of the district have a voice and that transparency of information and decisions will be a top priority. He also hopes to work with local legislatures to improve the discrepancy in the amount of funding per student, as Anderson District 1 has consistently been in the bottom 6 districts in the state in per-pupil revenues out of the 81 school districts in the state. “I believe that the state and federal government need to do a better job of providing equal funding for our students.”
“I believe that the cornerstone of this community is our public school system and that the supportive community and the devoted district employees are what make Anderson District 1 great.”
