Kevin Hinkle

Kevin Hinkle will soon hold the Dis-trict #1 seat on Knox County Board of Education.

“The school board is doing great, and I want to keep it going,” said Kevin Hinkle, who, as of Tuesday, will officially run unopposed for the District One seat on the Knox County Board of Education come November.

Hinkle, who has two children in the school system, says that his focus is and will remain  “the kids,” no matter what. He plans to ‘carry on the good work the board is doing,’ much like his brother Gordon Hinkle did, who stepped down from his duties earlier this year when his daughter was hired as a full-time district employee.

“It’s in the best shape it’s been in for a long time…and, for my part, we are going to do the right thing,” said Hinkle.
