  1. I urge all Jamaica and Catlin voters to understand that this consolidation offers our children a broader education with more opportunities to be better prepared for life after high school. We need excellent offerings for students wanting to go to a university, but we also need those offerings that will prepare them for other choices such as the trades and certificate programs, etc. that don’t require four year degrees.

    When I think of the possibilities that the future holds for my two grandchildren, I want our new district to be able to prepare all students to be able to pursue their life’s successful choices.

    My mother was one of four children raised by a widowed mother, and each of them was successful and happy in their vocations because they knew the key to happiness was a proper education. They all attained Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees that my grandmother was never able to obtain, an she was very proud of all that they were able to achieve! Let’s pass that belief and encouragement on to all of our children!
