  • As an Oak Hills School board member I will listen! By definition, communication is the EXCHANGE of information, not just sending information. I want to make sure that students, parents, teachers and administrators have an avenue to express their issues/concerns/praises. Feedback from the community is imperative to ensure the best decisions are being made.
  • Oak Hills is Highlander Strong because we are made of a diverse community that understands both the importance of tradition and the need to continually adapt and change.

  • The best thing about Oak Hills is the wonderful tradition of excellent schools-top notch teachers and administrators and the wonderful families who as children attended Oak Hills schools and now continue to live here and raise their families.
  • As an Oak Hills School board member I will strive to make wise decisions on how to continue our academic excellence, while keeping our funding low and will create doorways for our parents to be more involved in our decision making.
  • Oak Hills is Highlander Strong because we set high expectations and work collaboratively to do what is best for all students.
  • I am Highlander Strong because I am a product of the Oak Hills schools and community.  I am an Oak Hills graduate, Class of '62, and was in the first class that attended all 4 years in Oak Hills High School. I was an original Oakette for four years and was in the first play ever performed in the high school. I've lived here all my life. My son and daughter are graduates and live here as well.  Two of my grandchildren are graduates and my other grandchildren attend Oak Hills Schools. So you might say that Oak Hills is part of my DNA.
  • I am honored to serve as an Oak Hills School Board member because I want to give back to the district I love and work together to maintain our high quality of life by educating our next generation. I look forward to working on the Oak Hills Board of Education to make decisions that are best for all students.
