Leslie Wesley is an authentic leader who cares about our children!
It is a critical time at the National, State and Local levels of America right now. More importantly, as a concerned parent living in this community, I see the challenges our children face today and there must be a change. After great consideration and discussion with my husband Derrick and family, I have made the decision to run for School Board for the South Bend Community School Corporation, District 3; and I know it is the right decision.
I graduated from LaSalle High School in South Bend, Indiana and received my B.A. in Liberal Arts from Indiana University Bloomington. Afterwards, I dedicated my life to public service and the educational system.
Since the late 90’s, I have been an advocate for educational opportunities and have dedicated myself to improving the educational experience for students of diverse economical and racial backgrounds. I have demonstrated this through my volunteerism and public service. My extensive experience working with students, parents, teachers and administrators in various leadership roles, have allowed me to build strategic alliances with key leaders in our community in the interest of our schools and students.
My priorities will be to implement and support initiatives that will engage, educate, and elevate our students to prepare them for the future and allow them to reach their full potential. It is my goal to see South Bend schools once again setting the standard for quality education for all students.
I am passionate and excited about representing District 3, as well as serving all students and their families in the South Bend Community School Corporation.
Thank you in advance for your generous support and your confidence in me. I look forward in engaging with you along the campaign trail.
Leslie Wesley, Candidate
South Bend Community School Corporation School Board, District 3
