|From Leadership Plenty|
Jesse, Nate, and Amanda thanked Cathy McMorris-Rodgers for her help and guidance in our local school issue.
Congressional aides, state senators and representatives, federal authorities, and school officials had gathered in our local schools on November 12th to tour and talk about the questionable status of our local school facilities. This is indeed one of our local needs as those officials agreed that:
• The district needs new schools.
• School building funding is difficult.
School district board Chair Donna DeWinkler, and Sheila Stalp, deputy director for U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers, who represents Washington’s fifth congressional district in the nation’s capitol, arranged the tour and discussion.
Our HORIZONS Leadership Plenty Team took the opportunity to thank U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers after she spoke at noon on December 3rd to the attendees at the HORIZONS Conference in Spokane at the Washington State University campus.
For more information on the school building issue, see this article in The Star newspaper.
