This weekend my alma mater, the Northwestern Wildcats, will make additional history by playing in the second round of the NCAA tournament. And I am reminded of how it was great collaboration that got them there. The school, the team, the NU coaching staff have all worked together for the greater good and achieved this long sought goal. If the Wildcats win, everybody wins. Unity makes great things possible.
Just like sport brings people together in support of their team, there is also a common goal that binds District 115 parents, school administrators, school board members, and the community-at-large. That goal is preparing our children for a successful, fulfilling academic, professional and personal future.
I pledge to you that if elected to a seat on District 115’s board, I will work toward the finest academic program your tax dollars can provide. Open dialogue with parents, students and community leaders will be at the heart of my commitment. Everything I do on the board from my due diligence and recommendations, to my fiscal and academic decisions will be both cost effective, transparent, and keeping all the students’ needs at heart.
Dr. Holland and I are both NU alums and we share the same goal of making LFHS the best that Chicagoland has to offer our current and future families. Collaborative relationships make this happen. Then who wins? Everybody wins!
Asking for your vote on April 4.
