Bethlehem native Alan Justice has formerly announced his candidacy for Holmes County's District 3 School Board seat.
A 1990 Salutatorian graduate of Bethlehem High School, Justice attended Chipola College, followed by earning his Bachelors of Health Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Florida. Since then, he has served the community as a physical therapist, most recently through co-ownership of Restore Therapy and Wellness in Holmes County. He currently serves on the advisory board for Bethlehem School and Wallace Community College Advisory Committee for the Physical Therapist Assistant Program.
Justice and Alison, his wife of 23 years, have three daughters who attend Bethlehem School and mark the fourth generation of family educated in Holmes County schools, giving Justice what he says is a vested interest in the school system from a parent's perspective.
"I have a vested interest in our school district," said Justice. "It is my goal to see that every student in Holmes County receives the highest quality education possible. This can be accomplished through effective communication between our administration and staff, making sure our educators have the tools and support necessary to perform their jobs, providing a safe and cultivating environment for our students to learn and fostering community support to propel our schools forward."
Justice says if elected, he hopes to "bring fresh vision and a desire to help create effective and lasting change that will further improve the quality of education."
Justice will face District 3 incumbent Jason Motley in the August 26 election.
