Why are you running for Weatherford ISD place 6 trustee:

Like the mission of WISD, I have made it my mission to “Teach, Challenge, and Inspire” children in this community for almost 20 years. As a coach, volunteer, mentor, and parent in WISD, I know the importance of making sure students have the tools they need to become successful & productive members of society. It is crucial that schools provide the recourses needed to make sure every student has an opportunity to be successful once they graduate; whether they plan to attend college, vocational school, or step right into a career field. I have a passion for Weatherford and children and I know that I will do everything I can help build a better future for WISD students, and help give faculty and staff the best opportunity to help students become successful members of the community.
