Seminole County resident Kelly Denham has been unanimously appointed by the Seminole County Board of Education to replace retired board member Les Robinson as the District 5 board member. She was appointed at the Monday, April 10th Board of Education meeting and will serve as District 5’s BOE representative until December 2024.
Interested and qualified candidates residing in District Five were asked by the Board of Education to apply for the position after the announcement of Robinson’s retirement in March.
Newly appointed Seminole County District 5 School Board member Denham grew up in the small town of Pineview, Georgia. She understands how important a great school system is for the hundreds of children that walk through the doors at Seminole County on a daily basis. Denham graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
She has always been passionate about education and the total school experience, which is highlighted by her involvement in the school system at Seminole County.
She is currently serving as the membership chair on the Seminole County Athletic Booster Club, and is involved in the school council meetings at the Seminole County Elementary School.
With her degree in nursing she has filled in as the school nurse at the Seminole County Middle High School, and has also worked as a substitute teacher for the Seminole County Elementary School.
Denham is married to Emmett Denham and they have three children in the Seminole County School System, Kendall, Ellis and Ethan Denham.
“I am excited about this opportunity to serve Seminole County in this new capacity as the School Board member representing District 5. I look forward to working with fellow board members and Superintendent Earnest in helping to provide the absolute best educational experience for each and every student in Seminole County,” commented Denham.
