    Reasons for wanting to serve on the Board
    We moved from District 34 to OLPH this year and instantly fell in love with everything OLPH!  This is a school that provides a hugely engaged faculty and parent community, of which we have jumped into with both feet.  I have been continually impressed with the level of support and commitment shown by the Board and believe I can help to continue that tradition.  I also think it would be great to increase the female representation on the Board.

           AYSO Regional Board Member
           Former member of the Glenview Long Term Planning Commission
     
    Reasons for wanting to serve on the Board
    I have been a part of the Glenview community my entire life. My parents grew up in the area, were married at OLPH, and moved my family to Glenview when I was 4 years old.
     
    Kilby and I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada for 2.5 years for work and during that time our children were in all-day private school. Upon returning to Glenview, we wanted to keep all of them in all-day school, and the easiest way to do that was to enroll them at OLPH. Candidly, when we made that decision, I figured it would be a solution for a year or two and we would move them to District 34 because that is where we went as children.
     
    However, I quickly discovered the spirit of community that makes OLPH so special. Our kids absolutely love going to school each and every day. They are Warriors through and through. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the teachers they have had because these educators are mission driven and truly care about our kids. I value that their school experience is grounded in their faith.
     
    Moreover, the way that the OLPH School community has banded together and responded to the challenges of the last year has inspired me to want to serve.

    Simply put, I feel compelled to volunteer to help sustain the institutions that I feel define our community and make it so special. OLPH is without question one of those institutions. I know my unique experiences will enable me to be of service to the school and the school community that means so very much to our family.

    Reasons for wanting to serve on the Board
    Typical to many young families in the Chicago area, our family made the move from the city to the suburbs in June of 2019. After an exhaustive search we picked Glenview as a community that best matched our family and faith-oriented values. OLPH was a key determining factor in our search as a high-quality Catholic Parish and School was very important to us.
     
    Although we have only been parishioners and school members for a short time, both have impacted our family significantly. Prior to the pandemic, we greatly enjoyed the 9:30am family mass in McDonnell Hall every Sunday where we got to meet other parish families. We also have a neighborhood "OLPH Group" we regularly organize activities with.
     
    All 3 of our children attend OLPH and our expectations have been exceeded from both an educational and cultural standpoint. Our first grader, Charlotte, continues to amaze us with the curriculum she is learning at only the first grade. Patrick, 5-day Pre-K, enjoyed school so much he asked to be enrolled in after school adventures. Pre pandemic, Charlotte enjoyed the basketball clinic and all 3 kids enjoyed the ice cream socials, PJ parties and various other activities we hope to resume when safe.
     
    All 3 kids have made great friends whom they interact with regularly outside of school. Our nanny, Dina, even met other caretakers during the preschool pick up and regularly organizes activities with the kids. We also were extremely impressed and grateful with the way the school handled the challenges presented by the pandemic. Overall, we are committed to OLPH and I would like to participate as a way to give back and ensure the strong culture, education and Catholic values remain in place or potentially strengthen for my children and generations to come.
