After a two-year break, former Juneau School Board member Destiny Sargeant will run for office again.
Sargeant filed her nominating petition Thursday with the city clerk’s office.
She was elected to a three-year term in 2007 and served until 2010. She says she did not seek re-election so she could spend more time with her children.
She says she’s missed the board.
“I’m really looking forward to serving the school board again and I haven’t been gone so long that it’s all brand new,” she says. “I feel like a lot of things that got started when I served are ongoing projects so I’ll be able to hopefully come back and be right up to speed pretty quickly.”
Before running for the board the first time, Sargeant was a member of the community task force planning for Thunder Mountain High School.
She’s a clinical psychologist for the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium, or SEARHC. She has one daughter in middle school and a son that has graduated.
Three school board seats are open. Each is a three-year term. Sargeant is the second to file to run for the board. Current member Andi Story is running for re-election.
