I love hanging out with friends, especially ones that share my name!
Amy Nelson and I had the privilege of attending a networking dinner sponsored by the Wyoming Business Alliance and hosted by Governor Matt Mead. It was very refreshing to meet so many community leaders invested in education and receptive to the PublicSchoolOptions.org message: trust parents with their kids’ education!
Following dinner, we mingled with some leaders in the public policy arena in Wyoming: State Representative Sue Wilson and Congresswoman-Elect Liz Cheney. The future Congresswoman highlighted how her five children are all very different (we all know what that’s like!) but that she was able to take advantage of school choice policies in our state to meet their needs.
I walked away appreciative of the connections I made with businesses, individuals, and organizations that are moving Wyoming forward. Because of PSO’s prominence as the parent voice in the education reform movement, we have a place at the table even in non-education settings. I am comforted that our champions come in all shapes and sizes: teachers, community leaders, and politicians.
I also know some parent champions, and love the ones named Amy!
