Nothing is more important to parents than their children’s health and safety. The education they receive and the educational environment are both crucial to that priority. Providing a safe, supportive and sound experience for all children at Liberty is the goal, and I am interested in serving on the School Based Decision Making Council. As a parent to two active boys, I understand how school experiences, opportunities and relationships can help parents to guide children to be well-rounded participants in the academic setting, and I desire to serve on SBDM Council to represent all parents who are working toward this goals as well.

Richard Ingram

I would like to serve on the Liberty Elementary SBDM council because I believe it is important to support the efforts of the entire Liberty family- Liberty’s teachers, staff, parents and students- as we work together to deliver a top quality education and experience to Liberty’s students. Thoughtful input from  Liberty’s parents, through the SBDM council, helps hold us all accountable. Liberty has provided a nurturing, challenging environment that has given my children the opportunity to begin to develop the building blocks that will serve them as lifetime learners; I feel that by serving on the SBDM council I can help assure that we continue to deliver those opportunities to Liberty’s students. I am a university professor, with teaching experience, and also have a professional background in health and wellness. I think these characteristics give me the background necessary to effectively serve on the SBDM council.

Jennifer Staton

My name is Jenny Staton and I have a first grader at Liberty this year. I would like to be nominated as a member of the SBDM because I believe in the excellence of Liberty Elementary School. I have had the pleasure of volunteering throughout the school and forging relationships with teachers and administrators. My primary goals is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all students attending Liberty. Previously, I worked part time as the controller of a horse syndication company. As the controller, I managed several individuals and was involved in the decision making process for the company. I believe my past experience will allow me to make the best decisions.

My schedule is flexible to allow me to attend meetings during the work week. I am outgoing and easily approachable allowing people to openly share their ideas, however, I will always stay true to what I know is best for Liberty and its student body.

Kim Vono

I would like to be on the council for many reasons. One of which being that I care about the students and I believe all of them deserve a good education. After being a parent of a child at Liberty for the past five years, I have seen how numerous programs and changes have impacted the learning environment in at positive way. I have also seen changes that I did not necessarily support.

I would like to be a part of this process because I have a background in management. In the past, I worked in property management and I oversaw two to four million dollar budgets annually. In that role,I oversaw everything from the cost of copies in the office, to marketing and landscape. Currently, I am working in healthcare and I can bring my knowledge and insight on health into the decision-making process. My degree is in accounting and I have an open and analytical mind. I will strive to fully research the topics we are discussing and I will listen to opinions while weighting the possible outcomes of those decisions. My son attended Edith J. Hayes and Henry Clay. The local school system is not new to me. Since the meetings are in the evenings, I will not have a problem attending them regularly.
