The Carroll County School System is saddened by the passing of Board of Education member Clayton Kierbow, a Whitesburg resident who had represented District 4 since 2017.
“We are so grateful for the wonderful work Mr. Clayton Kierbow did in his six years on the school board,” BOE Chairman Bryant Turner said. “He did everything he could to put our students first, many times attending meetings when we know he was very sick. Our hearts are heavy and our prayers go out to the Kierbow family as our entire board and community mourn with them.”
Services for Kierbow are Saturday, September 2 at 2 p.m. at Eastside Baptist Church. The family will receive friends at the church one hour before the service.
“Mr. Kierbow was truly dedicated to the students and employees of Carroll County Schools and especially those in his district,” Superintendent Scott Cowart said. “The entire 24STRONG community expresses our heartfelt sympathy to Mr. Kierbow’s family and friends. We grieve alongside them as we fondly remember his many contributions to our schools and community.”
Martin and Hightower Heritage Chapel has charge of the arrangements.
