Jennifer Knight, Vice Chair: Zone 4 – SW Area

1709 SW Hunter Road, Prineville, OR 97754
Phone: (541) 633-5641 (cell)

Jennifer Knight is a long-time resident of Crook County, spending her K-12 years in this district. Her husband, Rich, was born and raised in Prineville. Jennifer worked as a bank teller and loan officer before becoming a Les Schwab employee for 14 ½ years in the Telecommunications Dept.

When their first son was born, she and Rich decided it was best for her to be a stay-at-home mom, which she was blessed to do for many years. Jennifer was on the PTC at Powell Butte and Ochoco Elementary. She volunteered at each of the kids’ schools whenever needed. Once they were middle school age, she began subbing as an Instructional Assistant at Crook County Middle School. She worked at the middle school for ten years as a SPED Instructional Assistant but left to pursue a different career path at Rosendin Electric in a Purchasing capacity, where she is currently employed.

Jennifer and Rich have three children. Their oldest son graduated in 2023 from OSU Cascades with a degree in Computer Science Engineering. Their daughter is attending COCC and pursuing a Business degree. Their youngest son took a gap year and worked in construction but decided to return to school and is currently attending and playing football at Willamette University.

Prineville has been their home for over four decades and will continue to be. Jennifer felt led to give back to the community, and with her background in the school district, she felt compelled to run for the Crook County school board. She plans to build on what is already in place and to help Crook Country School District grow and flourish.

Cheyenne Edgerly, Director: Zone 1 – NW Area

199 NE 10th Street, Prineville, OR 97754
Phone: (541) 460-2073 (cell)

My name is Cheyenne Edgerly. I’m a native Oregonian and the proud mother of six children, five of whom have been enrolled in Crook County Schools. I graduated from Oregon State University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies, and in 2001 finished my Master of Arts in Teaching. My husband Brett is a third-generation Crook County resident and Crook County High School graduate. We currently own and operate two small businesses in Prineville. We love this community and are blessed to call Crook County our home. I have always had a strong passion for the heart of education: our children.

I ran for school board because I believe we need stronger parental involvement and greater transparency. When parents are engaged and valued in the educational process, it strengthens the ability of children to learn. Our community, teachers, administrators, staff, and especially our children, will benefit from a renewed interest of parents in our community to have a valued role in our public education system. I commit to providing consistent leadership and policy decisions to make sure that our students, educators, and parents have what they need to accomplish the work of learning.

The oldest of Steve and Emily’s children will graduate from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in business.  Their second oldest will be attending the University of Washington in the fall.  The youngest will be a Junior at CCHS fall of 2023.
