We endorse these candidates for Urbana School Board:
• Jim Arter, a highly effective teacher (now retired), was honored numerous times for his influence on student success. He knows from experience what students need.
• Elizabeth (Zibby) DeWitt, a parent and science-oriented professional, is committed to improving education. She volunteered on Urbana’s Education Visioning Committee and served as board president of the Center for Creative Child Care in Urbana.
• Darrell Thomas has proven himself in the past year as an appointee to the Board of Education. He brings valuable insight into preparing students for success with his background in business and manufacturing technology.
