Medina BOE member urges asks for support for her and 2 others in Tuesday’s election

Posted 20 May 2019 at 7:34 am


I’ve had the pleasure of serving on the Medina School Board for the past 9 years, 2 of those serving as board president. I’ve served along with my dear friend Lori Draper for 6 of those years. We’ve worked hard for the district making the tough decisions that have allowed us to provide a solid education for our children, one that that represents a value to our taxpayers and our community. Our efforts have paid off tremendously with our recent school rankings, academic results, as well as the wonderful successes of our athletes, artists, musicians, and BOCES and Tech students in their recent skills competitions. I couldn’t be prouder of the work we have done, but there’s more work to do.

Lori and I have both volunteered in the schools. Lori volunteers with the Band Boosters and other events. I’ve volunteered my time taking photos at sporting events, special programs, and band shows as well as bringing our TDI Certified Therapy Dogs to the schools to work with the children. I’m in the process of training Ellie, our next certified therapy dog. We hope to pass our test this summer and be able to start at the school regularly in September. Lori and I truly enjoy our volunteer service.

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting Kellie Schrader-Hurrell when she attended a board meeting. Kellie sounds like she’s got what it takes to become a solid board member.

I believe that together, Lori, Kellie and I, can continue to carry on the work of the board to provide a sound education to our students at a price the district can afford. We’d appreciate your support and your vote, on Tuesday, May 21st, in the District Office from noon to 8 p.m.
