Former Hug High principal Debra Feemster is running for the District C seat on the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees.
Dr. Feemster is a 42-year Nevadan who holds four education degrees, three from the University of Nevada. She is a 30-year resident of District C which encompasses most of northern Washoe County.
Earlier this month, she was appointed to a second four-year term on the prestigious Nevada Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Feemster, who began as a special education teacher and later became principal at Hug, Lincoln Park Elementary and Traner Middle School, retired from the school district in 2008 after 30 years of service.
