The State of Iowa was recognized by U. S. News and World Report as the number 1 state in the country for 2018. 

As you look through the data, you find that Iowa is number 1 in public high school graduation rates. These results happen because of great local school board leadership across the state. 

Let me introduce you to Chris Cournoyer, who is all about supporting education. 

Chris currently serves as the president of her local school board, which works to prepare students for post-secondary success. While accomplishing this, Chris is also called to be a fiscal steward of our taxpayer dollars. Her position as a member/leader of a non-partisan school board leads to the consensus-building mentality that Chris has to gets things done for her district.

Chris believes students that are graduating from high school need to be ready for post-secondary success in their chosen field – whether it’s a 2 or 4-year college, trade school, apprenticeship, military service, or going directly into the workforce. Chris believes we need to make sure students know you can get a good family-supporting job in Iowa, without a 4-year degree.

Chris is married to Kurt, the mother of 4 children, owns and operates her own business, is a member of North Scott Rotary Club, a community library president, a Chamber of Commerce board member, and the list goes on….

On November 6th, let’s vote for Chris Cournoyer, sending her to Des Moines where she can put her passion for education to work.
