It is often said serving on a school board is a thankless job, and frankly some days I would agree with that. Election day was not one of them.

My epiphany mid-day was no matter what the outcome of the day, the kind words and appreciation expressed in recent weeks go well beyond anything else I've experienced in my 15 years of serving on the York Suburban School Board.

Many, many thanks for not only your vote but also the thoughts that you shared.
