My Top 3 Priorities

  • I look forward to providing input and working along side the administration, teachers and parents to support and encourage life long learning in our students.
  • As an involved board member, I will support the opportunities in this district for continued success. Our community of administration, teachers and parents combined provides a foundation to help shape our students to become responsible adults.
  • RUSD is known throughout the county and state as a district of high integrity. It is my goal to support our district in a direction that will continue to benefit every student who has the opportunity to be educated in this great district!
