Running for my local School Board

I feel like such a grown-up! Yes, I'm running for the Benton County School of the Arts school board. I want to be an elected official on the board of the school that my third-grade son attends. Does this mean I'll have to start drinking coffee, learn to golf, and do other "grown-up" things I've been putting off all these years?

Will I have to join the PTO?? (Oh wait, I already did that.)

My goal in joining the school board, should I be elected, is to bring about more and better communication between the board and the rest of us, something I feel has been lacking in recent years. If I can help bring about this change, the parents will hopefully feel more involved and the teachers will feel more appreciated, both of which can only benefit the students. It's a win-win situation for everyone.

Okay, so maybe being a grown-up isn't so bad after all.
