Kathryn Passons Adcock has announced that she is a candidate for White County Trustee, running as an Independent in the August general election.
A lifelong resident of White County, I feel fortunate to have grown up on a farm in the Hickory Valley community, where I learned to value hard work, to have compassion for others, and to cherish the closeness of family. Many of the Christian values that have shaped me to be the person I am were instilled in me at an early age by family and friends in the community.
My formal education began at Doyle Elementary School, where I was both influenced and inspired by caring teachers. I attended middle school and high school in White County and graduated in 1988 with plans to go to college and become a teacher. After graduation from Tennessee Tech, in 1993, with a BS degree in elementary education, I was hired by the White County Board of Education and began my career at White County Middle School, where I still teach today. While emphasizing to students the importance of lifelong learning, I became a student again myself and earned a Master of Arts degree in 2000 and a Specialist in Education degree in 2002.
I am married to Jerry Adcock, and we have lived in the Cassville community for 22 years. We have one son, Rob, who is a seventh grader at White County Middle School. Our interests and activities include camping, hiking, and spending time on the family farm.
I have familiarized myself with the duties and responsibilities of the position of trustee, and I am committed to serving White County to the best of my ability. White County has trusted me with its children for 25 years, and you can trust me as our county’s next trustee.
