Reason for being on the Board
     The West Muskingum School District has been important to me for many years.  First of all, I have four children who have attended school in the district since the year 2000. In addition, my wife is a teacher at the middle school.
     Commitment to our district is a priority in my life and I have always felt strongly about providing the best education possible for each and every student who attends West Muskingum. Therefore, I pursued the opportunity to serve on the Board of Education.  My goal is to work with our school board, administration, and families to continually encourage our students to strive for excellence, both academically and personally.
