Support for candidacy very much appreciated

I want to thank everyone who supported me in my candidacy for the Beaufort County school board. I especially want to thank those who endorsed me, including Barbara Nielsen, Ted Huffman, The Island Packet, the Hilton Head Area Realtors Association and my friends and neighbors in Windmill Harbour. I also appreciate the financial support from the South Carolina Education Association.

I very much enjoyed the opportunities I had to meet new people, to make new friends, and to discuss what we want and need for our children and their education. The exchange of ideas and information in the campaign process was a great experience, and I am committed to my own lifelong learning opportunities.

I hope that all of the candidates, whether successful in their bids or not, will continue their commitment to and interest in the future of our schools. We need the support, engagement and dedication of everyone in our communities to render the best results for our children.

I will work hard to live up to your expectations, and I am excited about the prospect of moving forward to improve our schools in Beaufort County.

Thank you again for your support.
