Should you be elected, what are three specific areas you’d like to change, address, impro
ve or further research,and how specifically would you go about it?
I appreciate the opportunity to be considered as board candidate for the Willoughby-Eastlake Schooldistrict. Based on being a mother of multiple children within the district, I have a vested interest in the success,wellbeing, academic standing, and financial outlook of the Willoughby-Eastlake city schools. If elected inNovember, I have many specific areas of pertinent interest including:
helping the school district aptly evaluate and make sound and financially prudent decisions in the bestinterests of the student in congruence with community resources;
being a local representative to link the school district with the overall opinions and concerns of thecommunity;
to advocate for a strong system of student achievement based upon individualized student needs foroptimal success and achievement;
AND to advocate for drug education and bully prevention programming within the school district.
Whether for past accomplishments or future goals, why should voters elect you?
As a Master’s degree student in Addiction Counseling, I am committed to high achievement and academicgoals. Currently, I am on the President’s List at Capella University with a cumulative 4.0 GPA for the
of my entire Master’s degree
program. Based upon my academic standing and my volunteer activities, I wasawarded a John A.
