After winning in their elections, several Sevier County officials took the oath of office Aug. 31.

Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters presided over the ceremony.

“It is always good to be able to participate after we have had an election,” Waters said. “This helps us recognize what a great county we live in.”

Oaths of office were administered to Property Assessor Johnny King and County Clerk Karen Cotter.

“I’m thankful to the voters for giving me a job for another four years,” King said of the ceremony. “I truly thank them from the bottom of my heart.”

School Board members Charles Temple and John McClure as well as Constable Penny Campbell also took their oaths of office at the ceremony.

“I’m looking forward and I’m especially excited for what we are working toward in Seymour,” Temple said. “We are getting ready to build the junior high school behind the stadium. You can tell we are making progress by the number of awards we have won lately.”
