About Matt Scruggs

matt scruggs and familyAs a candidate for Wake County School Board for District 2, you should get to know Matt Scruggs.

Matt is a successful product of the North Carolina school system, and he would like to ensure that children today are afforded the opportunities he was given. Matt completed his secondary education at South Point High School in the Gaston County School System. With his mother, father and stepmother employed as teachers, Matt always highly regarded education as the foundation for future life. He was involved in multiple sports while maintaining excellent grades in school, allowing him to be awarded a academic/sports scholarship to Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, NC. Unfortunately, for health reasons, he was unable to complete his degree; however, he has recently returned to school and continues to work toward his goal of completing a Bachelor’s Degree.

Today Matt continues to grow as a person and in his career thanks to his foundation. He has two beautiful girls and a supportive wife who help him through everything. He has a demanding job with Carquest Auto Parts which he loves. He is also very involved with his church and the Boy Scouts of America, volunteering for both organizations whenever time permits.

Matt, with the counsel of his wife, chose to run for the Wake County School Board because he wants our children to have the best education possible. Matt realizes that children are the future in this country, and if we fail to invest properly in our future, we will not have one. Matt looks forward to sending his two children to a school system with ample opportunity where they can grow and learn about themselves, their interests, and their future career plans.
