For 150 years, this great organization has brought together groups of thought leaders who have helped change the face of public education through dialogue at the national level. AASA has given my district, and other small school districts like mine, opportunities to broaden academic capabilities and achievement. That’s one of the reasons why I am so proud to be a member.
