Opinion

Support Stevens

I would like to endorse Wendy Stevens for Position 4 School Board Director for the Bremerton School District.

I have had the opportunity to work with Wendy in various ventures over the last four years. I am the president of the Bremerton Education Association, and in that capacity spend many hours attending district meetings and working on committees and activities that support Bremerton Schools. I have worked side by side with Wendy on the BSD-PTA Council, Citizens for Good Schools Levy Committee, BSD District Finance Committee and in her myriad volunteer efforts in our schools.

Wendy has provided valuable support as a Pre-school Parent Liaison for Bremerton and as a parent leader volunteering hundreds of hours as the PTA President at Naval Avenue Elementary, and the PTA Council Treasurer. The staff at Naval greatly respects Wendy for her heart and energy for Bremerton kids, and appreciates the many opportunities Naval PTA has provided, largely due to Wendy’s steadfast leadership.

Wendy’s influence reaches beyond her family’s community school. She has generously volunteered her time and talents to make our district the pride of Bremerton. Wendy has participated for several years on the Bremerton School District finance committee. She is bright and thoughtful about her recommendations for program support. This work opened her eyes to the financial needs of our schools, which led Wendy to accept, single-handedly, the challenge of chairing the Citizens for Good Schools Levy Support group. She was able to lead a successful campaign for BSD, and our schools have greatly benefitted from the effort.

Wendy is a familiar face at the monthly board meetings and is often vocal about her advocacy for kids and program. Her passion for our schools is evident as she puts her mind and muscle behind her words. She is an asset to our schools and would be a natural fit for the open school board position.
