Education Champions Have Banner Election Day!

Elections | 11/10/2016

Patrick McReynolds Arizona Marketing & Communications Director

As Marketing and Communications Director, Patrick spreads the message about the good Arizona parents and students are doing, and ways the state could help them and their teachers do even better.

Stand for Children Arizona would like to congratulate all of the Education Champions we endorsed this year who went on to win their political races.  We believe they have shown a passion and dedication to making sure Arizona’s children have a quality education that leads to a college education for all.

We are especially proud to have, for the first time, jumped into the Maricopa County Community College Board race.  We believe community college is a vital pathway for students, many of whom from the most underserved communities.  The community college system needs to remain strong and accountable, and we believe it is now set up that way for years to come.

We know that this election cycle, in particular, has been tough on all of our supporters.  We reached out to you on a regular basis to help push these candidates over the finish line.  You did it!  And we couldn’t be more proud that you once again stood with us in this very important endeavor.
