Citizens for Shoreline Schools, which organized the successful campaign for approval of three Shoreline School District propositions on the February ballot, was among those honored by the Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA) at its Community Recognition Awards luncheon held May 14 at the Puget Sound Educational Service District.

Each year, WASA 110, which includes Shoreline, holds a luncheon and an awards ceremony to honor community leaders.

The ballot measures included the four-year maintenance and operations levy, a capital levy for technology, and a $150 million bond issue for the modernization/replacement of Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools.

This grassroots organization of parents, teachers, staff and community leaders brought together teams from all Shoreline schools, attended dozens of community meetings, waved signs on countless street corners and managed a Web site and social media. The result was passage of the M&O levy by 70 percent, the technology levy by 66 percent and the bond issue by 62.5 percent.

Representing Citizens for Shoreline Schools at the event were co-chairs Wes Brandon and Krista Tenney, and treasurer Beth Lydin.
