Meet Sherry Sexton

My name is Sherry Sexton and I have lived in District two since I was 7 years old. I am married to Stevie Sexton and have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. I graduated from Fleming Neon High School and have a BA in education from the University of Pikeville.


I have worked for Letcher County Schools for 24 years in many capacities. I was a school secretary and Family Resource Coordinator at Beckham Bates Elementary and now work at Central Office as the Energy Systems Supervisor. I have served on many committees over the years including the arts committee for tourism, the board of directors for United Way, and the Salvation Army, community catalyst for the Community Foundation, Trail town Committee, Chairperson for the Supervisory Committee Letcher County Schools Credit Union.


I feel I am the best candidate for Magistrate because I have written and received more than 10 million dollars in grants for Letcher County Schools, I manage budgets for these grants and I have 7 years of experience as an energy manager. I can and will do energy audits of our county owned properties so that we are not wasting money on electric costs. I will also look for and write grants for revitalization and economic development.  I feel very strongly that we need to look for ways to diversify our economy so that we are a strong viable community once again. I am looking forward to representing District 2 as Magistrate! I truly love Letcher County and will work hard to improve the economic outlook for us.
