Why are you running for school board? I am a candidate for the Superior School District Board of Education because of the passion I have for education in our Superior community. For 40 years I had the rewarding opportunity of making a difference in the lives of so many of the students, teachers and colleagues. My experiences as a teacher, the athletic director and as an administrator during that time was invaluable. I wish to continue to make a difference, to inspire students and teachers, and to be a good steward of our financial resources for our school district.
