I have shown dedication and an unwavering commitment during 20 years on the board.
I have done the work, and walked the walk.
The education of our children deserves our best effort.
Nothing has changed.
Our district has implemented our Safe Start plan and we have been successful due to the cooperation of staff, students, and community. We will continue to face obstacles related to the COVID pandemic. We will adjust as needed to keep kids safe.
We must place our children's needs first and work together to ensure a safe healthy educational environment.
Park County School District No 6 offers educational excellence and I am proud to have served the students in the Cody, Wapiti, and Valley communities for 20 years.
My Priorities are-
