Former Camas student urges voters to approve CSD replacement levies
As a former K-12 Camas student (Camas High School class of 2014), my classmates and I benefited immensely from both classroom and extracurricular programs funded by Camas school levies — sports, music, theater and robotics were just a few of the levy-funded programs that cultivated a life-influencing opportunity after my high school graduation. Looking back, I see why this educational experience is the reason so many families chose to make Camas their home.
My participation and development as a Camas football and baseball player, with levy-funded coaches, trainers and facilities, instilled a love and purpose in something that has catapulted me thus far in life.
Incredibly, it has taken me to other parts of our globe, where I have been able to share my experience, continue my learning opportunity, teach, give back and, hopefully, bring back this passion to my Camas community. It is with such pride that I boast — in all the places I have lived and to all the people I have met and friends I have made — about the town in which I was raised and of all that was made possible to me by an amazing Camas community and its extraordinary educational programs.
I am only one example in a very large pool of Camas graduates who share this pride and thankfulness. There are many more to come from your continued support and renewal of these important levies. I hope for and look forward to hearing about future life-influencing opportunities from every student who gets so lucky to grow up in Camas schools.
Please join me in voting Yes for Camas Schools
Let’s resolve to do better this election year
It’s an election year. Four years ago was an election year — a year that came to be known, in our house, as “The Year that Shall Not Be Named.”
