When I was elected to the school board in 2015, my hope was that I would be part of a board that would build better schools for Ship students.

When the Shippensburg School Board was sworn in four years ago, the district was still reeling from deep cuts in teachers, aides, and programs that had been enacted beginning in 2011 due to state budget cuts and the Great Recession. Making matters worse, the previous school board had just voted to provide millions of dollars in tax breaks to the Procter and Gamble and Georgia-Pacific warehouses that starved (and continue to starve) the district budget.
