As a patron of C-1, a property owner, and a taxpayer, I expect our schools to be run professionally. I'm going to be watching and my expectations are high. In many ways, a community is as good as its schools. Everyone--students, teachers and administrators--needs to take that to heart, and do this right.
Comment I hope carries the day--and the year:
From Sylvia Ross Ruskin 2011, reacting to the Fox 4 story:
with all the negativity being past i would like it to be known that ruskin isnt bad as the media portrays it to be. with alll of it, i feel that combining the schools, gives us a chance to meet new people of our community and become a stronger more powerful district. for anyone who has bad things to say about this idea and new experience you might as well stop. we are intelligent young adults, and we can prove to you all that hickman and ruskin can combining is one heck of a money saver.
