McGann will improve schools and community

Tina McGann would be a valuable asset to our school board. She is recognized as a leader, consistently displaying a passion to improve not only our schools but also our community.

Tina has played an important role in growing the Black Diamond Elementary PTA. When she became involved five years ago, the PTA was a relatively small, low-budget organization. The membership base has grown and the fundraising has increased substantially. Her dedication to the PTA has provided our school and its students with books, playground equipment, kindergarten scholarships, document cameras, Alfa Smarts and other technology that may not have been possible without her involvement.

She has great ideas of her own, but is always approachable and eager to hear the thoughts and ideas of others. When Tina chaired the spring carnival for the first time, the PTA rented the games. That summer, Tina and her husband Jack took the initiative to build games for the PTA to use at future events and saved the PTA a substantial amount of money. With her direction and forward thinking, the PTA has acquired their own storage shed, banquet tables and concession equipment that was previously rented, borrowed or piecemealed together for each event.

As you can see, Tina possesses the characteristics of a true leader: organization, dedication, forward thinking and communication. We hope others will take the time to get to know Tina and join us in supporting her in her campaign to become our Position 4 school board representative.
