Joelle McGrorty expects excellence from herself and expects lofty, yet achievable results from those around her. I saw this drive in her 20 years ago as an athlete and later as my daughter’s coach. We need a leader like Joelle McGrorty on the UCC board and let me tell you why.

I am writing in support of Chris Rusch who is running to serve on the UCC Board of Trustees for Zone 6. Chris has long been a strong supporter of quality education opportunities for residents of Douglas County.
