Former Hernando County Education Foundation executive director Beth Narverud, shown here presenting a check for $23,077 to the Hernando County School Board last year, says she plans to run for the District 3 seat on the School Board.

BROOKSVILLE — Former Hernando County Education Foundation director Beth Narverud has announced that she will run for the District 3 Hernando County School Board seat, currently held by Dianne Bonfield.

Narverud, 49, is the first candidate to enter the 2014 School Board race.

"Our school system is making progress, but it is time to take it to the next level," Narverud said in a statement announcing her intentions. "I want to be part of the team that will help place Hernando County schools amongst the best in the state of Florida."

Narverud and her husband, Marty, own two Domino's Pizza locations and have three children at Challenger K-8 School of Science and Mathematics in Spring Hill. Her twins are finishing up sixth grade while her oldest is finishing eighth.

Narverud joined the education foundation's board of directors in January 2010 and was named full-time director in 2011. She left the position Feb. 1 after her contract expired.

Narverud, who is running for public office for the first time, said she called Bonfield to tell her she planned to run for the seat.

Bonfield, who was first elected in 2006, has not filed for the upcoming election and has not said whether she will run again.

She did not return calls Monday seeking comment.
