Dear Editor,

I would like to express my deepest thanks and appreciation to the many voters that turned out and supported me throughout the Yorktown ISD school board election.

This was a commitment not taken lightly by me and I am anxious to begin working with my fellow board members to work towards our goal of academic excellence in a supportive learning environment. As Henry Ford stated, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” I hope for great success for Yorktown ISD.

My sincere thanks,
