Comments on Board serviceOur communities are very fortunate to belong to the Norris school district. What makes it special is a result of all the students, teachers, administrators and staff doing their best every day. The school board is responsible to create an environment where everyone can thrive. The Board must also determine how to best utilize our resources the Norris community has entrusted in us. I am honored to serve the district and will strive to do my best as a school board member.
