ROGERS (KFSM) — A former high school teacher announced his candidacy for the the Arkansas House of Representatives on Tuesday (Oct. 27).

Grimsley Graham, who spent 30 years teaching English at Rogers High School, will be running for Benton County’s seat, District 94, according to a press release.

“I want to be your state legislator because too many people feel like their voices just aren’t being heard in Little Rock,” Graham said in a letter to his supporters. “We deserve leaders who will listen to us, put our community first, and bring people together to get things done.”

Graham said that education will be a priority for him, explaining that he believes great teachers and schools are the key to a better quality of life for all families.

Graham has lived in Rogers for 40 years. He also ran for the same district seat in 2014.
