I have lived in the Northshore School District since the very early 1950’s and graduated from Bothell High School in 1963. I have always valued the education I received in this community. We have one of the best school districts in the state because of great teachers and a strong administration. In addition, our three communities have always worked together to ensure that we build schools when we needed them to prevent overcrowding, maintain our facilities to protect our investment, and provide up-to-date technologies to keep our graduates competitive in a fast-paced modern world.
Knowing that this area was a wonderful place to raise a family and poised for continuous growth in the future, our forward thinking citizens in the 1950's and 60's voted to fund the purchase of lands for future schools. The Northshore community continued that commitment to education as the district grew, never failing a school bond or levy. It is because of that legacy, along with a personal feeling that every student in our community deserves the best education we can provide, that I’m voting to support all three school measures on the ballot Feb. 11. I encourage all of my fellow citizens to do the same and please don’t forget to vote.
George Selg, Bothell
