Her reason for applying to join the board was simple.

I applied to be on the board because I have a passion for helping kids,” Simpkins said. “I have been watching all the amazing things going on in the district and want to be a part of it.”

Simpkins will serve as an interim member of the board and is eligible to run for the remainder of the term in this fall’s general election.
