Anne Sharp to Board: I want back on; here's some candy
Sharp was dressed in business pink, carried a binder full of notes to help her with her presentation, and even more importantly, she brought bags of candy for those who would decide if she would be able to return to a position she has held for the past 15 years.
The rest of her time was spent trying to sell the message that everything is good in the school district, only the district despite its public relations machinery and cooperation from the local media, has not a done a good enough job of promoting itself.
Sharp said that the district's scores are just fine and that she could help witn putting out "a positive message" to the community and businesses. "I can facilitate communication with the community.
"The district needs to move forward and be more positive," Sharp said.
Sharp remained defiant about her positions, saying, "Even though I lost the election, I won't back down. I am loyal to the Joplin School District."
She ended her time by reading a poem.
