“I believe that McCurdy Charter School has the potential to become one of the top prep schools in the state and I want to be involved it seeing that happen. I value my history with McCurdy and the experiences I had as a boarding student. I trust that with the administration and staff that MCS has, together we can help the school reach its potential and in that way we will be serving our community by providing educated individuals who will further their education and come back to serve the Espanola Valley and the outlying communities.”
