Why Sheril Serves Wichita Children:
"I have been part of the educational system my whole adult life. I worked for and retired from WPS and have also worked at the college level. As I looked for how to give back in retirement, I decided to run for the at-large school district position.
By serving on the Board I can apply my extensive experience learned from different educational settings to help showcase how WPS serves all students. I believe all kids deserve a quality education to ensure their success throughout their life. I am committed to helping WPS make this a reality for every student."
