Ernestine Krehbiel shares her favorite parts of serving on the Board of Education:
"I have chosen to work with the Board of Education for the Wichita Public Schools because of my strong belief that all children deserve the best and most appropriate education. I have spent my working career as a teacher and as a coach of teachers because of that passion.
"Children begin their experience with school ready and curious to learn. We must provide the very best to all children to maintain this enthusiastic appetite for learning.
"Adequate funding for public schools has been the role of state government since the beginning of public schools. Our democracy will only work the way it was meant to work with an educated nation. Our public schools are the heart beat of this city and of the state and nation.
"I want to be available to those within our school district who have wondered if their voice counts. All of our children and their parents are my constituents.
"In addition, children and teachers are wonderful people with which to spend one's time. Hope for the future is alive in our Wichita Public Schools, and I want to be a part of that."
