Letters of Endorsement: Susan Stephenson for School Committee

Published on

Dear Editor:

Having myself been an educator for over forty years, I recognize the dedication and commitment that Susan Stephenson will bring to the table as a School Committee member.   Ms. Stephenson understands what it takes to teach through her own experience as an educator.  Her value comes from years of direct daily contact with students, colleagues and administrators.  This perspective adds to the depth and breadth to the Committee members who currently have children in our school system.  

Teaching in today’s climate is not easy.  We need someone who has institutional knowledge of what has worked and what has not in the past.  We need someone who can objectively discuss and assess what is needed to sustain our excellent schools here in Hopkinton.

I ask Hopkinton residents to strongly consider Ms. Stephenson for School Committee.  Please vote on Monday, May 15, 2023.

Dear Editor,

I am honored to endorse Susan Stephenson for School Committee.  Susan grew up in Western PA and just recently moved to Hopkinton in August. She spent her 36 year career as a middle school/high school English teacher in the Seneca Valley district, one of the top ranked districts in PA.  Once she moved here, it didn’t take long for her to become an integral part of the community.  She started volunteering at the Senior Center, became a member of the Democratic Committee and is now a candidate for the School Committee. 

Susan has an extensive list of qualifications, including Teachers Education Association leader, collaborating with school administration and board members and helping to create one of the first senior projects on the east coast in 1998.  She is ready to tackle the many issues that face the Hopkinton school system such as student population growth, budget challenges, and maintaining the school’s high rankings.

In the 26 years I have known Susan, I can say that you will be proud to have her serve on our school committee.  Besides her educational and professional background, she is one of the kindest people I know, as well as caring and compassionate.  She’s always the first to help out anyone in any given situation. She iso everyone’s friend!  Since my major surgery in November, she has been here for me every day making meals, taking Sally out, driving me here and there, etc.  This is just the type of person she is!

 Susan will give her all as a school board member, taking the responsibility seriously.  One of her top priorities will be meeting  the needs of all students.

Please join me in voting for Susan Stephenson for School Committee on May 15th.
