I believe our children are our future. One of the most important things we can do is to prepare the next generation to be good citizens, and education is a vital part of that preparation. I have worked as a volunteer all my life to help young people learn and develop skills that will manifest a positive future for them. Last year I decided I could take this effort to a new level by running for a seat on the Richland District 2 School Board. I look forward to working with others in the community in making our schools the best in the state.
