I met Ms. Cochran in my first year at John F. Kennedy High School in Winston-Salem, NC. Ms. Cochran was welcoming and supportive since the beginning. She has been a great collaborator and has demonstrated to be a caring and supportive teacher for her students as well. She has my support as I firmly believe her vast work experience makes her a strong candidate for Lt. Governor!

When I think of Deborah Cochran, I think of a woman who is bold, beautiful and blessed! Deborah always had a smile on her face, and she was one of the teachers who inspired me to better myself personally and professionally. To me, it is evident that she is a distinguished teacher. She has a great rapport with her current and former students, and she is highly qualified to be a Career Technical Educator. Before I knew who she was to the people of Mount Airy, I thought she was veteran teacher who possessed a plethora of knowledge to help encourage students to better themselves. When I found out about her political career, I thought I was blessed to be working with a woman who enjoys serving others. Deborah really does put others before her own needs. She is a capable leader who will continue to serve the citizens of NC no matter her career title. I’m glad to be her friend wish her nothing but the absolute best with her future endeavors professionally and personally. She truly is a blessing and I hope that others can get to know her the way I have
I have had the pleasure of working with Deborah Cochran during the 2016/17 and 2017/18 school years. She and I entered the world of Career Technical Education teaching through lateral entry. It is a challenging process; few individuals possess the grit to successfully complete the licensure requirements within the three-year window. Ms. Cochran is an inspiration to all around her. She is dedicated, loyal and one of the kindest individuals I know. Personally witnessing students and colleagues high level of admiration for Ms. Cochran’s hard work and perseverance in the public school classroom setting has been a wonderful experience.
Deborah Cochran is the perfect fit for North Carolina's next Lieutenant Governor. I trust her to have our best interest at heart when she is voted into office next year. She will proudly stand up for our public schools, students, teachers, parents and community supporters.
