I am humbled, honored, and excited to announce that my colleagues have again elected me president of the board, and that my colleagues statewide have voted me New School Board Member of the Year by the Nevada Association of School Boards. I put my heart and soul into this work for our schools, and I am grateful for their appreciation and endorsement of my efforts.

This coming year holds challenges and opportunities for our public schools. My promise to the community is to be thoughtful, forthcoming, and inclusive as we move through a time of transition. I’m proud of the improvements we’ve made, and look forward to building on those.

Doing the job of board president means I will have more need of community support for my campaign. If you can make a contribution or sign up to volunteer, those links are in the comments. Thank you for helping me continue to support our schools.

What lies on the other side of graduation? It’s a daunting question for a lot of students. Thankfully, we have a strong community to help us show kids their options and lend a hand. Junior Achievement of Northern Nevada hosted a Career Fair with more than 40 companies and organizations, including the trades, higher ed, military, legal, financial, and technology groups. And since each of our futures begins with a dream, check out the amazing goals they set their intentions to. Our future is bright because of our kids. 😎

What happens when 17 school board presidents go to Vegas? A lot of sharing, comraderie, and learning, that’s what! I had a great time hearing from my fellow presidents about the challenges they face and the successes they celebrate. While our corners of Nevada may be different, we are all experiencing similar things and share a commitment to advancing public education. Thank you, Nevada Association of School Boards for bringing us together!Image attachmentImage attachment+1Image attachment

This looks like dirt but it’s really someone’s soon-to-be dream come true. Affordable housing is a serious issue so I was grateful when Reno Housing Authority invited me and other elected officials to learn more about their work to provide high-quality housing. Thanks to RHA, more than 9,000 Washoe residents have a place they call home, including families, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, youth moving from homelessness or foster care, and adults achieving stability after after homelessness. RHA is investing tens of millions of dollars in both brand-new developments and renovating older locations because where you live should reflect your value as a community member, regardless of your financial status. From single-family homes and condos to apartment complexes, they offer a growing portfolio of places that are making a warm home a reality for our neighbors in Washoe County,. They even offer financial literacy education, food support in partnership with Food Bank of Northern Nevada, and workforce development! Thank you so much for the incredible experience today, Reno Housing Authority. #opportunityknockshere
