I feel that I would be a good candidate for the Fruitvale ISD school board position simply because I care about the community and most importantly, the students.

Having spent my entire life in Fruitvale, I have come to know many of the students and parents on a personal level through children/youth ministry and through my kids, and watching them grow up in our wonderful little town.

I remember my years at Fruitvale ISD very fondly and I remember how the teachers always took the time to not only push and challenge me in education, buy on a personal level as well to help me become a better person by showing me that they were there and they believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. It is because of those reasons I continue to call them friends even into my adult years. I owe so much to those relationships for helping mold me into the man, husband and father that I am today. That is a very important thing that our school must continue and hold on to. If I am elected as a school board member, I will do my best to ensure that all the students at Fruitvale ISD are treated equally and that we know the importance of not only investing our time into their education but into their lives as well.
