Murfreesboro resident Dawn White announced Saturday her candidacy for the Republican primary in the 37th District of the Tennessee House of Representatives race.
White has owned a small business in Smyrna for six years and formerly was a teacher in the Murfreesboro City Schools System.
“Rutherford County has been a wonderful place to call home. I have seen it grow and change so much throughout my life. I believe that my experiences as a teacher, as a business owner, and as a volunteer in the community have given me the perspective I will need to represent the 37th District effectively,” White said.
White is a lifelong resident of Rutherford County and received her undergraduate and graduate degrees in education from MTSU.
She currently serves as a board member of CASA of Rutherford County, the MTMC Ambassadors, the Linebaugh Library Foundation, Read to Succeed and the Sam Davis Memorial Association.
She has also been actively involved with numerous other local charitable and community organizations, including the Child Advocacy Center of Rutherford County, the American Heart Association and the Discovery Center.
She and her husband, Chad, are active members of LifePoint Church in Smyrna.
