Suzanne Sack, Nelson Rivera, and Jennifer Voegtli represent a winning combination of professional and Board of Education experience. I am writing to support them and their commitment to our children.
Suzanne Sack has been a key member of the RSD17 BoE for 8 years. She chaired the Finance, Personnel and Evaluation, and Strategic Capital Planning Committees and is currently Board Chair. Suzanne has helped make countless decisions contributing to our school district’s success. She brings a wealth of professional experience, having held senior management roles in the financial industry.
Nelson Rivera is another important member of the RSD17 BoE, running for his second term. Nelson serves as the Chair of the policy subcommittee, participated in the development of the HK Vision of the Graduate, and was part of the new Strategic Planning process. Nelson brings valuable insights to the Board as a high school principal in the Connecticut Technical High School System. Nelson’s children attend KES.
Jen Voegtli will provide fresh perspectives as a new member of the BoE. Also a parent of Killingworth students, Jen holds degrees in chemistry and molecular biology. She has been active in the HK school system as a substitute teacher, room parent, and member of the PTO as Secretary and Treasurer. Jen received the Sgt. Dingwall Award for Community Service at HKMS this spring, and will make an excellent addition to the RSD#17 BoE.
I urge readers to vote for Suzanne, Nelson and Jen for the RSD#17 Board of Education in November.
