Melinda King

My name is Melinda King.  I am a native of   McMinn County and have lived most of my life in Englewood.  My parents are Mary   Lynn and the late Troy Slack.  My mother is a wonderful homemaker and my dad   owned Slack's Surveying until he died in October 2006.  I am the youngest of   three children.  I attended Englewood Elementary and graduated from McMinn   Central.  I received an Associates Degree from Cleveland State in Computer   Programming and another from Pellissippi State in Electrical Engineering   Technology.  Most of my work experience has been in teaching adults how to use   various computer programs.  I have also worked as a computer   technician.
My husband Tim and I own King Builders, LLC.  We have also   started a storage building business, King Self Storage.  Tim's parents are   Jeannie and the late Jack King.  Jeannie is currently serving on the McMinn   County Commission in the 4th District.  Jack served for 29 years until he died   in August 2005.  Tim and I have 5 children: Seth - Sophomore at McMinn Central;   Nolan - 7th, Morgan - 6th, Caleb and Garrett - 1st at Englewood.  We feel so   fortunate to have a large family.
Currently I serve on the PTO Committee   at Englewood, the McMinn County Education Foundation, and the Englewood   Recreational Basketball League.  At my church, Wildwood Baptist, I serve as   co-director of Vacation Bible School, High School Sunday School Teacher, and Jr.   High AWANA leader.  I am looking forward to serving my community, school,   teachers, and students on the McMinn County School Board.  Children are my   passion.  There's nothing that makes me happier than to see a child who is   happy.  Helping them to achieve their goals by providing them a safe and   nurturing learning environment is very important to me.  I believe that every   child matters.
