Assistant principal enters race for Hernando School Board seat

BROOKSVILLE — A third challenger for the District 5 Hernando County School Board seat has entered the race, with hopes of unseating incumbent Cynthia Moore.

Pine Grove Elementary School assistant principal Heather Urban has filed for the seat.

"I really feel that I could have more of an impact by working with all of the schools as opposed to just one school," Urban said. "I'm very eager to do that."

Urban, 46, has been with the school district since 2002 and has been in education for about 17 years. In Hernando, she has taught and been an administrator at several schools.

Urban served as the assistant principal at Eastside Elementary School for the 2012-13 school year, when the school received the district's first F grade from the state. She was then transferred to Pine Grove.

Urban says she believes in Hernando's schools and has the knowledge to make them successful. Noting that her top priority is safety, she said she supports placing a resource officer at every school.

Others in the nonpartisan race include Moore, Anna Liisa Covell and Robert Neuhausen.
