Wooster City School District Board of Education vice president Sue Herman was selected to serve as a public education ambassador for the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA).
“I’m really excited about this opportunity because public education is one of the cornerstones of our democracy in that everyone has the right to a thorough, good education, and our schools are doing a great job,” said Sue Herman. “I have been advocating for public education my entire life so this isn’t anything difficult for me to do and I am so grateful to get to do this. I know what goes into a teacher’s life and the energy and passion they pour into what they do with their students every day and to get to share that with people who are unaware and maybe put some minds to rest about public education makes me really excited.”
Sue Herman is well-qualified for the role of public education ambassador because of her vast experience. She spent 21 years in the classroom as an English teacher for Wooster High School. Currently, Herman is finishing her first term on the Wooster City School District Board of Education and is hoping to serve a second term. Herman is on the Nov. 5 ballot.
The OSBA Ambassadors for Education Program aims to share the good news about Ohio public education and OSBA activities. Ambassadors will participate in regional events, seminars, meetings and other activities. They are also available to participate in local school board meetings on behalf of the association.
“Mrs. Herman is following in the footsteps of legendary school board member, Susie Lawson. They are both tremendous assets to their communities and OSBA,” said Wooster City School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Tefs. “We are excited for Mrs. Herman and know she will be a terrific public education ambassador.”
