A crowd braved the cold Thursday evening to hear school board candidates and those running for UNM-LA's advisory board present backgrounds and ideas for advancing local education.
District 2 school board candidate Melanie McKinley is a chemical engineer and stay at home mom whose children are 6, 8, 10 and 12 years of age. "When I finish my first term, I will have two high schoolers, a middle schooler and one child in elementary school," she said.
McKinley, who has served as a PTO president, told the audience she would like to see the district become a shinning example of businesses and schools working together.
As it turns out, McKinley and the other candidates are unopposed in the Feb. 3 election.
After a long reprieve, this will be the second time Thelma Hahn, who resides in District 1, will again serve on the school board. “I probably come from more of a historical background…I taught at the district for 26 years in all of the schools.”
The bond issue is the top priority, she said, adding that she wishes everyone would get more facts about the schools and the condition they are in. Hahn has a master’s degree in art education.
Two incumbents, Nelson Hoffman and Ron Dolin, both PhDs, will each bring eight years experience to their third terms on the UNM-LA Advisory Board.
