My name is Segun Adeyina and I’m running for the position of Gwinnett County School Board Member District I. I believe that all children are entitled to a quality education and that parents deserve to know that at the helm of their children’s academic career, is someone just like them. Not only do I reside in Gwinnett, my three children are currently enrolled in the Gwinnett County Public School system.
In 2014, my family relocated to Georgia and immediately became Gwinnett County residents. Since then, the growth and progress of our children assures my wife and I, that we made the right decision to live in Gwinnett. To give back to the community that has given us so much, I am running to Represent District I on the Gwinnett County School Board

Coupled with more than 30 years of professional work experience in Information Technology for companies including General Motors, HP, and currently providing IT Consulting services.
I bring a unique insight to the Gwinnett County School Board with my work experiences.
I have a Bachelor’s in electrical engineering from the University of Akron in Ohio and a Master’s in management information systems from The Lawrence Technological University in Michigan. Additionally, I am a Certified Project Management Professional (PMP).
Commitment to Community
I find it is absolutely important to be an active voice in the community where one lives. Lending my expertise in a meaningful way has always been my way of supporting my community. Over the years, I have served on many boards and lead several organizations. These organizations have focused from a range of areas such as mentorship, voters registration/education, promoting diversity, and civic responsibility.
My wife Kofo Adeyina, CPA and our three wonderful children Dami (16), Lade (13) and Layo (13), happily live in Grayson, GA. I coached U-8/U-9 Boys Recreational Soccer at Briscoe park for 2 years. I have been a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters where I mentored twin Brothers in which I have maintained a relationship for 20 years..
