The only way I sleep at night is by knowing that I’m helping others. I am passionate about helping great people to do great things. I believe that our Paulding County student body is full of great young people who are ready to do great things!
As the owner of Me Inc., I help people to optimize and execute lucrative strategies in a short time to facilitate success for their vision. In addition to helping others realize their dreams, my husband, Kevin Guines, and I own Genesis Supply Service LLC. Our family has been members of the Paulding County Community for 5 years and take great pride in doing our part to make sure that our county thrives.
I left my corporate executive position to make sure that I was able to help others. As a parent of 2 current Paulding County students and one alum, I am very invested in making sure that all of our students have the opportunity to shine. To this end, I have been very involved in the advancement of the Paulding County community, as a part of the Superintendent Advisory Board, the Vice Chair of the Boys and Girls Club of Paulding County, participating in the Local School Council Board for Sammy McClure Middle School, and being a committed member of the North Paulding High School CTAE Advisory Board.
Not only have I been working with administration to help the youth of Paulding County gain greater access to the resources that are available, but I’ve had the awesome opportunity to work directly with our awesome students.

A few words about Mrs. Guines-Jackson: she is determined to make certain that every child is given needed attention to succeed academically. She has a resume that boasts her strengths in every aspect of business and education. She has always had excellent ideas for Paulding County School board to implement into the school’s Improvement; Diversity and Inclusion; Continuous Improvement Work Plans and the assurance of its effectiveness; Accountability and Transparency of Funding and it’s allocation, how financial decisions align with school improvement priorities; and, Mentorship Programs for Employee Growth, Development and Retention.
Mrs. Selena is one of the most caring people I know. She has dedicated years to school improvement in the form of launching the Science and Math programs at the Paulding County School District. She is also instrumental in promoting the success of charitable events geared toward children and their families. Her dedication is and has always been impressive.
Aside from her work as a business women, wife and mother, Selena has single handedly assisted youths with their career paths and have assured that they are connected with the right mentor/ coach in their areas of interests. One of those students happen to be my son who recently graduated from the Paulding County School District through Mrs. Guines-Jackson’s guidance, mentorship and coaching. As such, I endorse Mrs. Selena Guines-Jackson for the position of Board Member at large.
