My position on religion is not a requirement or qualification for being a member of the Fayette County School Board. Indeed such a requirement is specifically prohibited by the United States Constitution.

I believe a relationship with God is a deeply personal matter. I would never presume to try to impose my personal beliefs on any other individual, student or school. As a School Board member I must give the utmost respect to the entire range of beliefs among our citizens.

I applied to be on the School Board because I believe in a life of service – it is why I went into education to begin with. I strive to treat everyone with respect, kindness, and love without judgement of their race, religion, political party, economic status or any other characteristic. I hope to be able to model that ideal for my children and every student in our system.

If you have any specific concerns about our schools, I’d love to hear them. I’m happy to set up a time to meet. I also urge you to come to any of our meetings – the next one will be on February 13th.

Thanks for your interest in our school system. I remain dedicated to the students and citizens of Fayette County.
