Dr. Timothy Melchert, Associate Professor in Counseling & Educational Psychology, and Becky Gundrum, SOE Business Manager, both won seats on their local school boards during the April 1st election.
Of his new post on the board in Fox Point-Bayside, Dr. Melchert comments,“My wife and I are very supportive of the schools that our three children attend, and we think they actually do a very good job. But we’ve had some concerns too, and things can always improve. So I felt I needed to do my part and help out.”
Becky Gundrum secured one of two available seats with the Slinger School District. “As a female and as a parent of kids in the Slinger schools, I feel that I will be able to contribute a unique perspective," she says, "I’m looking forward to bringing my insight and experience to the table to ensure that district policies support the educational needs of our students as they become productive members in a global society.”
