Letter to the Editor: It's about the children of the district

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I have attended most of the citizen's advisory meetings and listened to the pros and cons of the school building issue. Both sides have made some important points, but it really isn't about us, it's about the children of the district and what's important for them. I have always found when it comes to children of this community people will support any issue if they feel it is in the best interest of the children. Of course, new buildings will not guarantee academic gains, but they will provide a safe and up-to-date facility that will give them every opportunity to be successful in life.

I encourage you to vote yes on Tuesday, April 8, for the future of our children.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support you have given me during my administrative career with the Marshall School District and presently with the Buddy Pack program. I am fortunate I was able to raise my family in this community.
