Letter to the Editor: Shoreline Education Association (SEA) endorses Meghan Jernigan

Saturday, November 2, 2019

To the Editor:

SEA held endorsement interviews earlier this month and are pleased to announce our endorsement of Meghan Jernigan for School Board Director, Position 1. As a parent of two students in the District, she comes to us from Washington State University, where with her Masters Degree in Public Health as a research faculty member she continues to navigate the public health system to ensure equitable access to clinical research for all of Washington’s residents.

Ms. Jernigan is not new to public service. As a parent of a preschooler and 4th grader, she volunteers in classrooms, serves as a docent in the PTSA Art Docent program, and is the Secretary of her PTSA. SEA was drawn to endorse her in part due to her commitment to an open, responsive Board and her desire to involve stakeholders in critical decisions from the outset of the process. She is committed to serving the students and staff of the Shoreline School District while recognizing the need to maintain a financially healthy and intellectually vibrant District.

If elected, Meghan will bring much needed diversity to the Board both as a woman and as an indigenous tribal member of the Choctaw people. She is dedicated to assuring equitable access to programs and instructional outcomes across the diversity of our student population and will work to ensure that all voices will be heard in the District’s future decision making.

Ms. Jernigan has the support of Shoreline educators, and as you cast your ballots over the next two weeks, I urge you to give her your support as well.

Please vote for Meghan Jernigan.

Molly Boone
SEA Legislative Chair
