Spotlight on Young Leaders Board Member Page Smith!

All children deserve the opportunity for a good education regardless of social background or socioeconomic status. K-8 is also such an important time in a child’s development. Improving their reach to better education will help set them up for greater success in the future. They are also our future, and they deserve our guidance and commitment towards their future development.

What do you hope to gain from your experience with the Young Leaders Board? 

I believe this opportunity will help me expand outside of just work commitments and help me make a greater impact for our community. I also look forward to meeting and communicating with like-minded individuals.
