GREENVILLE – Marv Stammen, former president of Second National Bank, summarized the intent, and the end result, of the Greenville City School District’s campaign and the slogan it used from the start: Strong Schools Strong Community.

The levy won by a wide margin Aug. 6, 57 to 43 percent. Out of 5,927 votes cast, 3,395 voted “for,” 2,532 “against.”

In a possible explanation for the unusually strong support for a bond levy, he said “it’s no longer cool to be against this.”

About 200 levy supporters and campaign workers were at Memorial Hall to watch as the votes were being posted. When the final tally came in the group broke into cheers, clapping, hugging and congratulating each other. Many were laughing; a few were in tears. High-fives were commonplace.

“This is awesome,” said one supporter.

“Our kids have a new school,” yelled another.

Others expressed disbelief along with relief. “I just can’t believe it after all this time,” she said. Then she laughed.

“Fifty seven to 43 percent? Unheard of!”

There were 19 school ballot issues in the Aug. 6 special elections. Of those 19, six were approved by voters. Greenville was one of them. Passage of the August levy ensures it will keep the 12.5 percent rollback to property owners.
