When asked how he would approach students’ learning loss from the COVID-19 pandemic in a Community Impact Newspaper questionnaire, Redmon offered tutoring, summer school and additional help at home as a start. He said maintaining teachers’ focus on educating students and removing the “extra things” they have on their plates would also help get students back on track.
On election night, Redmon said in a phone call to Community Impact Newspaper that he was thankful for the community’s support.
“I’m thankful for the community to come out and support me and the opportunity to serve for another three years,” he said.
