My name is Brook Willeford, and I’m running for South Whidbey School District Board of Directors, Position 3. I was born and raised on South Whidbey, and I’m a proud graduate of the South Whidbey School District and Carleton College. I co-manage The Clyde Theatre with my parents, Blake and Lynn Willeford, and raise my 3-year-old daughter Hazel with my wife Katja.
I’m running for School Board because I want Hazel to be as proud of her South Whidbey education as I am of mine.
I believe that we need new direction in the school district, to emphasize building community within the schools, to tie the schools more closely to the greater South Whidbey community, and to work toward clearer, more transparent communication within the district and between the district and the community.
