Frances Rosales announces candidacy for Rutherford County School Board


Frances Rosales, a community volunteer and parent living in Rutherford County, has announced her candidacy for a seat on the Rutherford County School Board. A strong advocate for education, Rosales pledges her commitment to working with students, teachers and families to strengthen the county’s school system and address issues facing the district.

Rosales said, “It is imperative that we have a strong public school system that allows students to thrive academically and socially. We are a growing community facing many educational issues, including zoning, budget, and program choices. It won’t be easy, but if elected, I know I will have a positive and dedicated impact. As a board member, I will be committed to working as a team and engaging with our administrators and faculty. At the same time, as a parent, I can assure other parents that I will listen and be a voice for families in our community. I believe that together we can give our children the future they deserve. As our children thrive, our community will also thrive.

Rosales is running for the Area 7 seat on the board now held by Jim Estes. Mr. Estes announced his retirement in February and Rosales will be the only Republican candidate to run for his seat. While running as a Republican candidate, Rosales said, “No single group owns good ideas. However, we cannot put a divisive or extreme ideology ahead of our children and our schools. We must agree to do what is best for our children and our community.

Frances Rosales graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BS in Biochemistry. She is currently employed as an SEO Manager at Harper Collins Christian Publishing. Rosales and her husband, Joshua Rosales, have two grown daughters, a son who attends Blackman High School and a daughter who attends preschool. Rosales and her husband hold leadership positions with the nonprofit organization Break-Thru Nashville.
