Right person at right time

By
From page A8 | April 22, 2014 |

I urge the school board to appoint Madhavi Sunder to the open seat on May 8. I am confident that Madhavi has what it takes to be an excellent member of the Davis school board. Madhavi, a product of public schools and universities, is committed to seeing that Davis schools continue to provide a high-quality education for all our students.

Madhavi showed her willingness, even before her kids were in school, to work on behalf of Davis’ schools when she led the campaign to name the new school after civil rights hero Fred Korematsu. Even though Madhavi works full time as a professor at King Hall School of Law at UC Davis, she is a tireless volunteer in our schools. She has served on the Korematsu PTA, the GATE Advisory Committee and a Strategic Planning Committee Action Team, to name just a few.

Although with two elementary-aged children of her own, Madhavi has a personal stake in the quality of our schools, she is dedicated to the needs of all our students. Whether they are bound for trade schools or colleges and universities across the country, she wants to be sure their experiences in the Davis schools are the best they can be.

Madhavi already has an impressive track record of work on behalf of Davis students. She is knowledgeable about budgets and programs. She is committed to representing the community as she addresses the challenges ahead.

As a former teacher in the Davis schools for 24 years, as the mother and stepmother of four and the grandmother of three who have attended K-12 in Davis, I believe I have a good idea of the kind of person we need on our board. I believe Madhavi Sunder is the right person at the right time. We are so fortunate she is willing to serve. I hope the board will appoint Madhavi to the open seat.
