Cheryl Mayes, the School Board member for our district, recently helped organize the Metro Board of Education Student Safety Summit. I was delighted to be invited to participate in a session dealing with what we can do from the out of school/Youth Services perspective and what we can we do to provide summer programs and recreation services. These discussions were led with expertise by School Board Member Dr. Sharon Gentry and Hal Cato, Executive Director of the Oasis Center.
As a former member of the School Board, I am grateful to our education leaders in Metro for pro-actively addressing these issues. As a candidate for Metro Council, I'd like to hear what residents of District 29 feel is important with regards to our children and the time they spend outside of school.
