Three outstanding candidates came forward to represent the West Valley community for the position of School Board Director District #4. The School Board was very impressed with the quality of all candidates who applied. Following last week’s interviews, the Board spent a great deal of time reflecting and weighing the qualifications of each applicant. After an Executive Session at the School Board meeting on October 8, the Board invited Dr. Barbara Gilbert to serve as School Board Director District #4 for the West Valley School District. Dr. Gilbert has a Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership from Seattle University and is active in the community with YWCA, Cowiche Canyon Conservancy and other community organizations. We are grateful for Dr. Gilbert’s willingness to serve the West Valley community in this capacity. Thank you to all who applied.
