Coming soon - my response to 5 questions post by Beatrice Daily Sun

As some of you might know, this year I am running for the Southeast Community College's board of governance. Because of this, I received request from Beatrice Daily Sun to provide their reader my political view on 5 questions. Today, I finished my response and emailed to the newspaper. Hopefully, it will be printed in the next couple of days. I will post my response here right after it appears on the paper or on Nov. 1, 2008 which ever is earlier.

The five questions asked by the Beatrice Daily Sun are:

1) What experience do you have that makes you a great candidate for the SCC Board of Governors?

2) As a board member, how will you deal with financial issues that students will face; such as rising tuition costs and the lack of private loans for college?

3) One of the current board's guiding principles is to value and support diversity? How have you in the past and how will you in the future, uphold this principle?

4) To promote student learning through the provision of quality instruction and curriculum is another of the board's guiding principles. How will you ensure that students as not only receiving quality instruction, but also ensure that students are getting the most possible out of the curriculum provided?

5) Another principle is to develop and maintain partnerships, which the board works to do. If elected to the board, what partnerships will you strive to either develop or maintain?
