While I do not have children of my own, I have had the pleasure of teaching many of your children and their children in the Bowling Green School District before retiring. Supporting the school system continues to be a personal commitment. With this in mind, two recent experiences have prompted this letter. This evening I attended the B.G.H.S. Senior Scholarship Program held at the Performing Arts Center to present a local scholarship. What an amazing evening! It was a celebration of academics, leadership and work ethic. As each of the 90 scholarships was awarded, the students demonstrated courtesy and attentiveness to each presenter, accepted their awards graciously, and expressed genuine congratulations to each other.
Two students were honored with appointments to the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. Historically, this is the first appointment of a young woman from B.G.H.S. to a service academy. This community should take pride in the 40+ well-deserving students who were honored this evening.
Two weekends ago, I attended the Saturday performance of Beauty and the Beast at the Bowling Green High School Performing Arts Center. The caliber of this production rivaled the Broadway performance of Beauty and the Beast held in Toledo a year ago, which is not surprising, since 100-plus students and their faculty advisors participated in after-school and evening practices since late January.
It is important that these dedicated and talented students are able to perform in such a first-rate venue as our Performing Arts Center. Three sold-out performances confirm that others agree. Tonight's scholarship program and the production of Beauty and the Beast simply reinforce that our students continue to be prepared, mentored, involved, and challenged by our schools.
To this end, I am committed to vote for the levy on May 7th, for then I will be investing in the futures of the children and grandchildren of my former students.
