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.
