Kylen Anderson, candidate for the Sparta Board of Education, has worked tirelessly for the last 10+ years with the Sparta Education Foundation as its Trustee, Vice President and President.

Since its inception, the Sparta Education Foundation has donated approximately $930,000 to the Sparta School system. Kylen has worked laboriously in organizing the annual Turkey Trots, the Dragon Boat Races and other events to raise money for these grants which allow our our district, through this grant process, to remain within the budget constraints and still offer additional programs such as robotics and the coral reef aquarium.

Having served with Kylen on the Board of Education for the past 3 years, I know her to be an intelligent, thoughtful and fair-minded addition to our Board.

I encourage everyone to re-elect Kylen Anderson to the Sparta Board of Education.
