More Back-to-School Events

A special day indeed, as I got to spend it in three locals who are fired up about the new school year and the HOPE campaign.During the ratification meeting at Western Heights, members of their local pledged to support the campaign to make a difference for Oklahoma's children. Sharon Teague, her officers and building reps do a great job. Their members are well represented.

At Moore, the Moore Association of Classroom Teachers had their annual "Teacher Extravaganza" where the teachers and support professionals get free lunch and an opportunity to visit a number of vendor booths. Getting a free meal puts everyone in a good mood. Jill Dudley, MACT President, and her members do a great job of setting up the event.

The HOPE campaign also had a table set-up in the commons area and many people were gathered there to sign the petition.

The day ended in Yukon with the local leaders and building reps of the YPEA and the new hires. We had a great meeting and everyone is ready to get the started. YPEA members are committed to great public schools and they are indicative of the quality of people I see across our state.
