Jesse Rudd II, the current vice-chairman, has served on the board for four years, as well. Rudd was raised just outside of Salyersville. He and his wife, Rebekah, have two children, Trey and Finley. Rudd graduated with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Pikeville College. He received his doctorate in pharmacy from Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia.
Since 2013, Rudd has owned and operated Parkway Pharmacy, in Salyersville, and he has been a pharmacist for over 13 years.
Rudd said his own children inspired him to pursue a spot on the school board.
“I wanted to be a part of the board because of my concern for my kids and as well as the other kids throughout the district, and I wanted to make sure they have adequate facilities and programs to get a proper education.”
