I am writing in support of the upcoming levy for Northwood Local Schools. As the granddaughter of a 1944 Northwood graduate, the daughter of a 1969 Northwood graduate and a 1994 Northwood graduate myself, I will proudly vote yes on Nov. 5.
Believe me when I say that I understand the connection and sentimental value that our school buildings hold for many community members, but we need to consider the educational demands of the 21st century and how our buildings are handling those demands.
As a high school guidance counselor, I see that education today is delivered in an entirely new manner, with new tools, new techniques and new technology that no longer fit the conventions of our school buildings. In this rapidly changing educational environment, we as Northwood voters have the power to support our children and make them the future leaders of this great community!
Wouldn't it be wonderful to initiate that support by creating an environment where our students and teachers are able to take advantage of the latest and greatest equipment available? Wouldn't it be wonderful to provide the children of Northwood with the opportunity to experience all of the benefits associated with a new, state of the art facility? As a product of the Northwood Local School System, a resident of this beautiful community and a parent of two amazing Northwood students I would say that the answers to those questions are yes and that is how I will vote on Nov. 5. I hope that all Northwood residents will do the same.
