MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Candidates in the Marshall County Superintendent's race are focused on the general election in November.

A second run for the office turned out differently for Republican Cindy Saye Wigley. She was defeated four years ago, but she didn't let that stop her, and that determination has paid off.

Much has changed for Wigley in the last four years. She has obtained a Doctorate. Dr. Wigley said she is determined for change in the school system and said she is humbled by the support she has gotten from the community.

She said she looks forward to getting out in the next few months, meeting with the public as she prepares for the general election. Wigley said her desire to be Superintendent is driven by her desire to make honest, student-based decisions for the system.

"Our desire is to see a positive culture and climate within our schools," said Dr. Wigley. "I believe we can build that. Our desire is to see students prepared for college and the workforce, and we can do that by collaborating with our local elected officials, business leaders, and educational efforts."

Dr. Wigley will face Democratic challenger Andy Grimes in the November general election.
