“Zig Zigler stated ‘If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are willing to learn, no one can stop you.’ I have been taught from a child and agree that education is empowering, and that empowerment often leads to success. This is true despite socioeconomic status, race, religious background, or other defining characteristics.
Everyone deserves an opportunity and right to a quality education and The Epiphany School of Charlotte provides that chance to an incredibly exceptional group of unique and extremely gifted students. Additionally, the school’s teachers, administrator, staff, parents, and board are all unequivocally committed to the achievement of that goal and to the building of an unwavering commitment to excellence in education: The foundation of each student’s success. But more than that, what makes this school so unique is the tangible demonstration of its teachers’ passion, diligence, and commitment to each student: Both within the hallways and classroom of this special school and beyond.
Being raised in a family of educators has taught me that supporting such an audacious mission is a way to see beyond oneself and (in partnership with the school, its students, their parents, the faculty, staff, and board), humbly serve the children of our community. Indeed, this has become of paramount personal importance to me and so I am honored to serve them all as a member of this board.”
