Businesswoman plans to seek seat

NORMAN — Norman businesswoman Cindy Nashert publicly announced her intention to file for Office 3 on the Norman Board of Education.

The announcement came in a news release issued Wednesday.

Nashert’s announcement is a statement of intent, with actual filing to come during the formal filing period Dec. 3-5.

The northeast Norman seat currently is held by Darry Stacy, who will vacate the seat when he assumes the responsibility of District 2 Cleveland County commissioner, a position to which he was elected in June.

Nashert owns and operates an insurance agency and currently is serving United Way of Norman as its campaign co-chair, according to the release.

Nashert is an active community volunteer and has served as president of the board of directors for the Norman Chamber of Commerce, Norman Rotary Club and Hi-Noon Business and Professional Women, according to the release.

She also served as PTA president at Jackson Elementary School, where her three children attended. They are all recent graduates of Norman Public Schools and currently are pursuing degrees at the University of Oklahoma.

Longtime community volunteer Ted Greb is chairing Nashert’s campaign committee, according to the news release.

“We reached out to Cindy for her proven conservative leadership as we seek to fill this very important seat on our school board,” Greb said in the release. “Her record of public service speaks for itself, and we believe her credentials and experience will help secure Norman Public Schools’ standard of excellence for years to come.”

Greb said campaign and fundraising efforts already have begun, even ahead of the formal filing period in early December.

Nashert said she has reached a point in her life and career where she feels motivated to give back to a school system that has provided her own children with a firm educational foundation.

“I have the time and energy to make a difference,” Nashert said. “I believe that serving on the Norman School Board is the best place for me to make a positive impact for the next generation of students.”
