Letter: Vote for Westercamp to serve on school board

On Sept. 12, please vote for Keith Westercamp for Cedar Rapids Community School Board.

I have known him for 45 years. He is a man of strong integrity and has demonstrated a high level of commitment to the education of the students in the Cedar Rapids area.

He is the father of four children, all who attended Cedar Rapids Community Schools and graduated from the University of Iowa. He understands education as his wife taught for the district, his daughter-in-law is a teacher and his two grandchildren attend Pierce Elementary.

He has given thousands of volunteer hours to the Cedar Rapids community as well as their schools. Community service and improving the community have been a strong consideration for him.

He owns a small business and brings a high level of expertise and perspective to the Cedar Rapids business community and Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Creative Corridor. This is a great attribute for a school board member. The Cedar Rapids Community School District has been fortunate to have someone like Westercamp with his strong values, leadership skills, and a person who truly cares about the community and student success.

A school board member needs to be someone who is knowledgeable, passionate and is dedicated. Westercamp has proved all of these qualities with his past service on the board. Please vote for him and give him the opportunity to continue his leadership for excellence in education.
