Terry McGuire served as a member of the Bradley County Board of Education from 2004 to 2006 and again from May, 2007, until the time of his death. Terry was instrumental in helping obtain funding for the most recent construction projects and served on the architect and construction manager search committees. 

His genuine love of people and desire to be a peacemaker was reflected in his service on the Board of Education: Mr. McGuire served on the Negotiation Committee, Family Engagement Committee, Continuous Improvement Committee and was Chair of the Ethics Committee. His sweet, calming spirit brought people together on common ground for the benefit of this community. 

Mr. Johnny McDaniel, Bradley County Director of Schools, said, “Terry McGuire was a graduate of Bradley Central High School and a veteran who served our country and our community with a servant’s heart.  Terry had a great desire to advance education in this community for the benefit of the children of Bradley County and the future of this community.  He was an articulate voice on the Board and shared his heart for ever improving our school system.  I appreciate his service to the Board of Education and to this community.  He is a friend I will greatly miss.” Current Donors include:
