Abbotsford – Korky Neufeld sat on the Abbotsford school board as a trustee for three, 3-year terms between 2005 to 2014. He feels the time is right to return as a trustee and made his intentions public. He is hoping that voters remember him and return him to school board in October.
In his media release to FVN he notes: There is no greater endeavor than positively investing in today’s youth so they can be contributing citizens for generations to come.
You have heard it said, “It takes a village to raise a child”. The involvement of the home, the classroom educators and the many community partnerships ensures the best possible outcome for that student. We are building our community together one child at a time.
I believe in the unique potential of every child to successfully learn!
As parents, Cynthia and I have succeeded in navigating our four children through public education by our active involvement at every step. Each one of our children had a different learning style and by partnering with the schools, we were able to specifically support each child. Now we are looking ahead to our grandchildren’s education and want to be involved helping shape Abbotsford School District to continue to deliver “a world-class, innovative and individualized educational experience for every student”.
