MSD Board interviews candidates for open seat BY KIRK BOXLEITNER firstname.lastname@example.org
MARYSVILLE — In the wake of Cindy Rebain’s Sept. 3 resignation from the Marysville School District Board of Directors, the remaining Board members interviewed three candidates for the vacant Director District Position 2 seat on Monday, Oct. 14. “I’ve got six kids, with one more on the way,” said Jacob Davis, who’s already served as the president of the Cedarcrest Middle School PTSA. Davis cited his contributions to reviving the Cedarcrest PTSA as evi-
dence of his effective communication skills, and his work with foreign military members in the U.S. Navy after 9/11 as experience in dealing with diverse communities. He also touted his real estate career as affording him the flexibility to devote many hours to the Marysville School Board, and to break away for Board-related business at a moment’s notice. “My whole family has grown up here since State Avenue was a dirt road,” said Davis, who promised to be punctual and act with integrity as a Board member. “I’d get together with the other Board members to benefit from their insights and their
resources. I’ll do my due diligence. I’ll pull my weight and then some.” Sandra Chavez, who’s worked with the parents and staff of Shoultes Elementary
in the area of English Language Learners, likewise pledged to listen to school staff, parents, students and community members to arrive at her decisions.
“I would make my decisions to ensure that our students are provided the highest quality education posSEE BOARD, PAGE 16
MARYSVILLE — The Allen Creek area adjacent to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Marysville received yet another ecological enhancement on Wednesday, Oct. 16, as roughly 100 third-grade students from Kellogg Marsh Elementary, just across the street, were joined by more than two dozen third- and fourth-graders from Marshall Elementary, as well as nearly 20 National Honor Society students from Grace Academy, in planting 360 trees at the site. Roger Kelly, of the Snohomish Conservation District, explained that his agency has partnered with the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Public Works Surface Water Management in restoring the site over the years, with volunteer contributions including the 10 yards of mulch that they received from the city of Marysville that day, as well as labor and supplies from members of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, who have promised to make the site open to the public for environmental education and awareness.
