Colby Coren, elected to the School Board for the first time four years ago, announced Monday that he will not seek re-election this year.

"Three and a half years ago, I made a commitment to the people of Henderson County that I would be a voice for students, parents, and taxpayers," he said in a news release. "That has been my drive and my compass behind every decision I have made. It has been my honor to serve the students, parents, staff, and residents of Henderson County.
"My deepest gratitude goes out to my fellow board members and the senior staff of Henderson County Public Schools. It has been a privilege to serve alongside each of you. I am grateful for the relationships that I have built over the last three years and the friendships I will carry with me for years to come."

He thanked his family.

"At times this has been more stressful on them than it was on me. I am blessed to have a close family who continues to support each other," he said.
"The future is bright for Henderson County Public Schools and I look forward to what is in store. While I will not be seeking re-election next term, I will always carry a piece of HCPS in my heart. I will continue to support and advocate for public education in Henderson County, even after my term expires. I believe in public education and in the people who lead it in Henderson County."
