As a former teacher at Central living in the Nevada School District, I was overly pleased by the number of individuals running for the Nevada Community School Board this year. So how did I decide who to vote for to fill the vacant seats? The incumbents? Former parents of children I had during my tenure at Central? Popular community members? An involved school and community parent? No doubt all candidates have the best intentions to provide the students at Nevada Comunity Schools with the best possible education in Story County, Iowa, and the USA.
Knowing the important decisions members of the Board make throughout the year, I have chosen to vote for a candidate who I have personally worked with on the Eastern Story County YSS committee, the Step into Storybooks committee, and remotely with the PTA. A person who is a devoted parent, an involved parent in school organizations, and has experience in social services. I have chosen a candidate who will be honest, not intimidated, and all-in when it comes to having discussions and making decisions for the children of Nevada Community Schools. Who meets my qualifications? STEPHNANIE SPENCE! I hope you wil vote for Stephanie, too.
