Received quality education, urges passage of school levy
When I first moved to Twinsburg in third grade, I felt like most 9-year-olds when they enter a new school: shy, timid and extremely nervous.
But, I was immediately accepted and welcomed by friends and teachers alike. This continued all the way up through graduation from Twinsburg High School in 2011. Twinsburg City Schools gave me the academic, athletic and social skills not only to survive, but thrive in the real world.
I was very involved in athletics throughout my time at Twinsburg, playing golf, hockey and baseball, all at the varsity level. These activities helped me build lifelong friendships, learn how to be a team player and how to push myself to be the best at everything I do. Twinsburg schools instilled in me the tools to move on after graduation and pursue my bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University and to earn my first job out of college with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
To say that the Twinsburg City Schools was important in transforming me into the person I am today is not only accurate but an understatement. It was essential. Hopefully, you will keep my example of quality education in mind when you vote to pass the Twinsburg City Schools levy on May 2, 2017.
