Anne Rowe has been a community leader in Denver for over 25 years. As a mother of three and Denver native, she knows the challenges our students face to be college and career ready. Before her election to the Denver Public School (DPS) Board of Education in 2011, Anne spent much of her career addressing the issues that impact Denver’s kids. She has served in leadership positions on a number of nonprofit community boards, including the Colorado Children’s Campaign, Girls Inc., the Children’s Museum of Denver, A+ Denver, and Summer Scholars.
Anne has distinguished herself as a strong advocate for Denver’s kids, starting back when she began her work in education as PTA president and founder and co-chair of Patriot Partners at George Washington High School. She also understands the threshold for college and workforce readiness as a small-business owner for over 20 years.
Anne is a graduate of Stanford University and holds a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Denver.
She currently represents Southeast Denver on the DPS School board. Since she was elected in 2011, Anne demonstrated a firm commitment to doing what’s best for students in both Southeast Denver and across the city.
If re-elected, Anne will continue her efforts to:
• Make sure every parent can enroll their child in a great public school;
• Hire and support excellent teachers; and
• Recruit and train strong principals who are ready to lead.
The parents that led our endorsement process recognize that she’s an outstanding advocate for Denver students and her continued leadership on the board is needed. As Anne says, “I’m running for a second term because I think DPS is making progress and we’re at a time right now where we can accelerate and actually make even more significant progress.”
