We Hear This Is Who Powell Is Trying To Hire

Montgomery County Schools superintendent Joshua Powell last week pushed the school board into approving a massive pay bump for a speech pathologist.

But who is the woman he’s allegedly trying to hire?

She’s a member and promoter of the Freedom Church.


She’s pals with Sammi Davis Hatfield.

She’s been pulled in to the Powell inner circle by people like Kristi Carter and Alison Cockrell Hubbard.

Her name is Marti Fairchild Escalante and Powell wants to hire her to serve at the preschool. Despite, of course, Powell already pushing the board to shut down the preschool and send kids to schools in their home district.

She currently works at a nursing home. Not with children.

Some of the fun things she’s been saying recently:


Fascinating stuff.
