Gale Saxon Main

Gale MainGale Saxon Main’s experience and civic involvement within the community have sculpted her to be an ideal addition to the JSU Board of Trustees. A native of Clay County, she holds a master’s degree in education from JSU. She taught for 10 years for four different school systems, and has served as chairperson on the Scenic Byways Advisory Council for the State of Alabama, treasurer and board member for the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation, Landmarks Advisory Board, as a member of The Alabama Commission on Higher Education, the Alabama Historical Commission and The Antiquarian Society of Montgomery, among others. Main looks forward to getting to know the students and faculty that comprise JSU, as well as making sure that JSU stays the best university it can possibly be. 

“I hope to talk with some of the students and faculty in order to learn their hopes, dreams, aspirations and some of their issues with the campus,” Main says. “The two most important things we must do are keep JSU at its academic peak while trying to keep education affordable.”
