What are some of your favorite things about DC West?
I love that we are still a small school. I feel like DC West includes everyone and is my second family.
What do you hope to see this board achieve in the coming year or years?
I will like to see the board continue to add scholarships and other ways to support our students and faculty
Why do you think others should support or get involved with DC West Schools Foundation?
I think it’s important for others to help us fundraise to have the necessary funds to offer the scholarships, classroom grants, etc.
