Dr. Grover May is an alumnus of Elizabethton and has served on the Board since 2013. As a physician, he sees firsthand the effects of education on society and believes education is critical for making strides in medicine and in life. He believes public education is the great equalizer that allows citizens to pursue their dreams and that people who are informed will make better decisions which can improve the community collectively. He believes education provides people with the tools to combat poverty and its effects. Both he and his children graduated from Elizabethton High School, and he feels called to continue service locally on the Board.
