My constant prayer on my leadership commitment, and discernment of where I can be the most effective, has brought me to apply for membership to the Diocese of Phoenix’s school board. My son has attended Catholic school for the past four years. I have witnessed firsthand some of the reasons why parents may give up. If accepted into the board, I will be obedient and committed to it. In any instance, I will actively support Catholic education. I believe if we can bring as many children as possible to Catholic education today, we will have a well-formed laity leading the secular world tomorrow.
