During my first weeks in the district, I have indeed experienced this commitment to excellence in education through the establishment of an academic, vocational and social environment in which all children can learn and succeed. I am truly honored to be appointed to this position and am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff and community to provide the best possible educational program for our students.”
