GREENBRIER — Two candidates — Daryl Davis and Jeremy Riddle — are on the ticket for the Sept.17 Greenbrier School Board election. Voting will take place at the Greenbrier City Event Center. Early voting starts Sept. 3 at the Faulkner County Courthouse in Conway and continues at the Event Center in Greenbrier from Sept. 11-17. Board President George Roberts has served the School District since 2003 and is stepping down.
Davis has lived in Greenbrier the last nine years and has four children who have grown up in this District. Two are now in college, one is a junior at Greenbrier High School, and one is in eighth grade at Greenbrier Junior High School. Davis’ Wife, Nikki, currently serves on the GHS PTO Association and both have been active in various jobs since their children were in the elementary grades.
With a Bachelor of Science degree in Management/Human Resources and a Master of Science degree in Operations Management, Davis works for Cromwell Architects Engineers and is on the Board of Directors as the Business Director responsible for the Human Resources Department and Project/Finance Administration. He is retired United States Navy, 2005, after 23 years. He is an Arkansas State Chamber Education Committee Member.
Davis’ published statement is that he wants to "hire the best teachers and provide the most current classroom resources and technologies while being good stewards with tax payers’ money." This is his second time to run for the Greenbrier School Board.
Riddle said, "The Greenbrier School District is all I have ever known." Twenty-five years ago, his dad was a Greenbrier School Board member and Jeremy’s three children, ages 12, 9, and 7 attend school in the District. He has been married to his wife, Kristen, for 16 years and really wants to be an active part in the continued growth of Greenbrier. He says, "We are a very blessed School District and I want to be on the team to continue the vision."
Experienced in operating a business, managing people, and setting a course of growth has been what he has done with his own business. He owns Arkansas Home Medical which serves the Faulkner and Van Buren County areas. After graduating from GHS in 1992, he earned his Associates degree from Central Baptist College, a Bachelor’s degree from UCA in biology and health sciences, and a Master’s degree in physical therapy. He and his family are active members of Antioch Baptist Church and founding Board Members of Soaring Wings Ranch.
