My personal goal, as a board member is to...
Achieve smaller class sizes.
Have more parental involvement in students' academic career, not only in the lower grades but all the way through college or trade school.
I want to see enhanced summer school programs
I want parents to see that we can share and display intrinsically the values of loyalty, helpfuness, trustworthiness, and fair play.
I will strive to see that skillful reading will be accomplished by the third grade for all students.
 
Why should children attend Marion Community Schools?
"Because we have a superintendent who demonstrates dedication and a keen understanding of educational objectives. Superintendent Lindsay is a man of dynamic character and stamina, who is meticulously accurate with a great sense of responsibility for the quality of his work. There are teachers and administrators who can exceed all tasks in educating our children to allow them to reach their full educational potential. It has been found that where high standards are expected, our children will meet those standards. I personally know many of the educators and principals in our schools, and I find these high standards being put into practice every day, throughout our Marion Community Schools. The above reasons are why I believe children should attend the Marion Community Schools."
