King County Local Voters' Pamphlet

November 5, 2013 General And Special Election

School, Federal Way School District No. 210 
Director District No. 4



Carol Gregory





Education: Bachelor of Education, University of Washington, post graduate work at several universities
Occupation: Director, Burst for Prosperity, an initiative of Children's Home Society

Statement:

I am running for Federal Way School Board because I am passionate about sharing my extensive educational background and experience to ensure that all children get the education necessary to contribute to a global society.

 

The next few years will require very important decisions to be made by the Federal Way School Board. As our economy diversifies we must take crucial steps to prepare children for jobs of the future. I have the knowledge and resolve to help make significant decisions that lead to positive educational results for children and our economy.

 

I have a unique wealth of experience; as a teacher and administrator, a policy maker at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, and proud grandparent of a recent graduate from Federal Way High School, attending the University of Washington, and two others currently enrolled in Federal Way schools.

 

I will work diligently to connect the resources in the community to the schools, and to build bridges between schools, families, community, civic and employer partners, underscoring the power of working together to support tomorrow’s leaders.

 

Endorements: Our Federal Way Teachers, Women's Political Caucus and many many more

Medgar Wells





Education: B.S. (Alcorn State University); M.Ed. (City University); Doctorate in Educational Leadership (Seattle University 2014)
Occupation: Principal of Overcomer Academy; Career Direct Consultant.

Statement:

The children of Federal Way are our most valuable asset therefore I am committed to holding our district accountable to improving every student’s academic performance. We must increase our graduation rates by diligently teaching the skills necessary for career and college while improving parental engagement. My goals include increasing the use of technology within our classrooms, improving school safety and refining our current grading system.

 

I have served in public schools as an elementary and middle school teacher, high school assistant principal and assistant superintendent. In 2004 I was recognized by OSPI for closing the achievement gap while principal. I have learned that improving student achievement requires accountability, fiscal responsibility, and a sincere belief that every child is capable of achieving success. 

 

I’m passionate about education, which is why in my personal time I teach life skills classes in King County’s correctional facilities and career-guidance classes at my church.

 

As school board director I will advocate for children and families, while making decisions that align with the educational outcomes I want for my own two children.

 

Endorsements: State Representative Roger Freeman, League of Education Voters, City Councilman Bob Celski, and School Board Directors Tony Moore, Angela Griffith and Danny Peterson.
