What do you like most about SCS? One of the things that I truly cherish about SCS is that each day when my children enter the doors of SCS, I am assured they will be engaged with and surrounded by followers of Christ. These are teachers who love them and are committed to helping and encouraging them in their faith.
Why did your family choose SCS over other schools? We chose SCS for our family because we wanted our children to have a Christ-centered education where they are taught from a Biblical worldview. It was evident from day one that the teachers, administrators, and other staff were invested in the “whole child”.
What do you think is the most important goal for SCS? I believe the most important goal for SCS is to maintain sustainable growth. This means a growth that our staff, administration, community, building, and resources can maintain, all while preserving excellence in a Christ-centered education.
If you could do one thing to increase SCS’ visibility in the community, what would it be? I believe that SCS’ visibility is a two-fold approach of both a physical presence by our students and staff and by visual signage. Our school does an amazing job of showing up to serve and give back to our community. The bake sales, food drives, neighborhood clean-up days and service projects are ways that we can show our love of Christ in Sheboygan County. If I could increase our visibility in one specific way, I would increase the signage around town. Many people do not know where we are located or that we have such an extraordinary campus. I would love to see a billboard on one of the major highways to advertise the mission and location of SCS.
Why did you accept the nomination to serve our community on the School Board? I am excited to be a part of what God has planned for SCS! We are facing some very exciting times of unprecedented growth. I fully understand that with student and teacher population growth, in addition to building projects, comes the challenge of how to provide the space and resources needed to meet the academic, social, and spiritual needs of all students. I feel that I can contribute in a positive way to the Board as we move forward with God’s blessing.
