Antelope Valley Press - - FRONT PAGE -

LAN­CASTER — Long­time vol­un­teer ed­u­ca­tion leader Donita Winn an­nounced her can­di­dacy Tues­day for elec­tion to rep­re­sent Trustee Area 3 res­i­dents on the An­te­lope Val­ley Union High School District Board.

“The An­te­lope Val­ley has been my home since 1973,” Winn, who pre­vi­ously served as an elected high School Board trustee from 2002 to 2015, said. “I will bring a life­time of ser­vice to our schools as a past PTA Pres­i­dent, hon­orary life­time PTA mem­ber, School Board trustee, and a found­ing mem­ber of the Aero­space Val­ley Re­gional Robotics Com­pe­ti­tion.”

She said that dur­ing her pre­vi­ous ser­vice on the High School Board, the District suc­cess­fully fo­cused on ed­u­ca­tional ex­cel­lence and sound fi­nan­cial man­age­ment.

“Un­for­tu­nately, the District’s progress has been brought to a stand­still by the ir­re­spon­si­ble ac­tions of two cur­rent Board mem­bers,” Winn said. “It’s time to elect ex­pe­ri­enced and ded­i­cated lead­ers who will put the needs of our high schools ahead of per­sonal or po­lit­i­cal agen­das.”

She se­cured en­dorse­ments from sev­eral lo­cal ed­u­ca­tors and com­mu­nity lead­ers.

“Donita will be an out­stand­ing trustee,” Lan­caster School District trustee Gre­gory Tepe said. “She will keep the best in­ter­ests of stu­dents, par­ents, staff and teach­ers in mind when mak­ing im­por­tant de­ci­sions for the High School District.”
