Having been a preschool teacher herself many years ago, Ramona is an advocate of the importance of early literacy and understands the impact of embracing the community and parents as partners in the success of the district’s students. Ramona is also passionate about the invaluable role public education plays in a successful community. As she began looking at running for the school board, it just fit. She credits Adams County School District 14 for providing a quality education for her sons and for launching her successful career in public education and feels running for the board is a way to pay back the community. She has the experience working for school boards, and now she can use her experience in a different way. Over the years, Ramona has had many mentors in the school board members she has worked for and hopes she can make a difference in the community as they have.
