School board appreciation

Please celebrate, along with me, the appreciation and recognition of our 7 school board members who voluntarily give so much of their time listening to concerns and making many decisions related to our students, families, staff members and community. Often times being a board member is a thankless job yet I, we, thank you immensely for your service to the school district. It is not an easy job and sometimes the decision making process and ensuing votes are difficult and not without controversy. I, we, respect your decision making skills and the ability to stand tall with your decision when guided by fact even if not the popular choice. Thank you for exercising your sound judgement, voting intelligence, and desire to do what is best for all concerned. You, President Sherry Gomez, Vice President Gretchen Sporleder Orr, Treasurer Julia Marchant, Secretary Dorothy Martinez and members David Tesitor, Eva Vigil and Jaye Sudar are appreciated and valued! Thank you for being you. Please give a hats off and a thank you when you see these folks out and about in Walsenburg or Gardner.

Superintendent Mike Moore
