COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Muscogee County School Board has another candidate in the running for District 3. 

Vanessa Jackson officially announced her candidacy Monday morning at the Childcare Network.

Jackson has more than 20 years of experience working in early childhood care and education and is the current director of the Childcare Network. 

She believes her background and experience will be a valuable asset if she is elected to the school board. 

"I feel we need to beam in on the kids at an early age in the elementary schools,” Jackson said. “Because they are the feeders for the middle schools and the high schools.” 

Athavia Senior, the current district three representative, is also running for re-election on May 24. 

Ten other candidates are running for school board seats as well.
