Why am I running for the Wahpeton school board?
I've spent my whole life serving, whether in 4-H, the U.S. Navy submarine fleet, or the North Dakota Army National Guard. When I recently retired from the National Guard, I decided I wanted to continue to serve my community in some other way.
Running for the school board is a logical choice because the school system is one of the things which my wife and I like about Wahpeton.
Overall, I think the school district is doing a fine job. I am concerned though with the very high turnover in employees and this is something I would like to address.
I graduated from Sargent Central High School, earned a baccalaureate from North Dakota State University and an MBA from the University of Mary. Between my education and leadership experience, I know I can contribute to the community as a member of the Wahpeton school board.
