Hi, I'm Barb Van Deurzen and I'm running for West De Pere School Board!
Who Am I?
I'm Barb Van Deurzen and I have spent nearly 21 years on our school board serving the West De Pere community. With this time comes experience, experience I hope the voters will trust me to continue to use. I come from a background of education and farming, having an Elementary Education degree from St Norbert College and having farmed in West De Pere with my husband John since 1973, first with my parents then on our own less than a mile down the road from them. Our kids and grandkids grew up working on our farm and learning in West De Pere Schools. During my time on the board, we have faced many challenges, from referendums to renovations, but nothing like what the past few years have put in on us. With COVID seemingly stuck with us, we need to work together with the community and administration to keep our students where they are safest, in school, getting the best education we can give them.
