Dist. 96 candidate passionate about schools

Success - Article sent! close

We are voting for Lauren Gordon for school board for District 96. We have known her for more than six years. During that time, we have had many conversations about education in our district. Lauren is extremely knowledgeable on this subject. She is a strong advocate for high quality education for all children in our district; those that are gifted or those that require more support and everyone in between.

Lauren is a proven leader. She served as PTO co-president for two years. She came with great ideas, lots of energy and a plan. Always willing to hear new ideas, Lauren welcomed input -- both positive and negative -- from the community.

Communication is another strong suit for Lauren. During her tenure as PTO co-president, I attended many meetings. She is a great speaker. Both knowledgeable and articulate, Lauren brings a wealth of valuable information to our community.

Lauren Gordon is our friend and because we know her personally, we also know her passion for raising standards for education. We feel she'd make an excellent addition to District 96's school board.
