“Carol has intellect and integrity and actively engages both. She is also an involved parent with children in our local district AND one at Orange County School of the Arts. I believe this gives her a particularly broadened view of the challenges facing our administration, educators, and students. Laguna Beach has a very good school district, yet there is always room for improvement. Problem solving and the honest assessment of the status quo is much needed on our School Board. Carol is who we need to help guide LBUSD to greater accomplishment for both the institutions and our children.”
