Campaign themes

My desire to become a board member is to hopefully use my expertise from my many years of education to help the Wentzville district to continue to be a district that any resident would be proud of. I feel my experience with several organizations in positions of leadership and my various positions within school districts I have worked for will allow me to help the district continue on their path of being the best in St. Charles County. Giving back to the young people in our society has been my life's work and I wish to continue that with a board position in this school district.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously.

Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[4]
