Trisha Hoyes who is a former Forsyth County teacher announced Monday she will run for School Board District 2. 

Hoyes said she is a Conservative Republican business leader and a foster parent. 

“I have always believed that when I hear the call to serve, it is my duty and responsibility to answer with a ‘yes!’” Hoyes said. “That’s how I’ve always lived my life - as a mother, a foster parent, and as a teacher. This decision is just the next step in that legacy of service I want to leave behind in our community.”

Hoyes has 15 years of experience as a teacher and the last two years she spent teaching at Forsyth County Schools. 

For nearly a decade Hoyes worked as a relator helping local families become homeowners.

“I believe that my experience as a National Board Certified Teacher, a mom to Forsyth County students, a foster parent, and a conservative business leader make me uniquely qualified to step up during this important season to serve our students, parents, and teachers on the School Board,” Hoyes said.

Hoyes said she previously served on the Superintendent’s Family & Community Advisory Panel. She is currently a member of Mashburn’s LSC involved in PTO and is an active business partner with Mashburn Elementary.

“I will fight passionately to bring transparency for our parents, provide safety for our students, and free our teachers from political ideologies to focus on academics,” Hoyes said. 

The Republican Primary will be held on May 21.
