Applicants sought for School Board

The North Clackamas School District will accept applications for a vacated School Board seat seat through Friday, Jan. 18, at 4 p.m.

Three who have so far applied, as of last Friday afternoon, include Jennifer Lund of Clackamas, Tory McVay of Milwaukie and Steven Schroedl of Happy Valley.

Lund has degrees in journalism and paralegal studies, is the daughter of a retired educator and has been a substitute teacher herself. She says she has a “real desire to help our schools be the best they can be” through listening to people about priorities such as finances, educational programs and graduation rates.

“This district has given much to my son,” she said. “I’d like an opportunity to give back.”

McVay is a banker at OnPoint Community Credit Union, who as a member of management, frequently advises the nonprofit’s board of directors. With three children who have or will graduate from MHS, he’s also coached Milwaukie Youth Sports for nine year and served on the NCSD Budget Committee for three years.

“I care deeply about the success of our children, pre-K through grade 12, and want to make sure we give them the opportunity and responsibility to be successful,” he said.

Schroedl is president of the Kikaua communications company and board chairman of the Cascade Heights Public Charter School, where he has two children in attendance. He’d like to use his experience in personnel management, fiscal administration and long-term planning to engage the community to think outside of the box in search of successful strategies.

“We need to lead Oregon back to prominence in education,” he said.
