Ownby's right fit for the school board

I am pleased to recommend Lisa L. Ownby, as your choice for the WJCC School Board Powhatan Seat. I've known Lisa for seven years and worked with her on numerous projects and functions including leading the Lois S. Hornsby Band Boosters together. During this time, I have come to know her as a passionate advocate for our schools and students.

Lisa is a mother of four children and has experience serving on several PTA and PTSA organizations. She is uniquely qualified for this position due to her varied volunteer experience within our district, her human services background and her exceptional ability to get things done.

Describing herself as someone who feels compelled to serve, Lisa hopes to address school equity, teacher compensation, achievement gaps and increase transparency. As a Board Member, Lisa would be excellent and an asset to all of our children, teachers, parents and school administrators she would come in contact with, so I recommend her without hesitation.
