My name is Scott Bokun and I’m excited to announce that I am running for a spot on the Lexington School Committee.
My family and I have lived here in Lexington in the same house for 23 years. My wife, Michele, and I have two daughters who have gone through the Lexington Public Schools from Bridge to Clarke to LHS. I was an at-home dad for seven years and then taught preschool for thirteen years at Hancock Nursery School here in town, helping children succeed in their first school experience.
This is why serving on the School Committee is right up my alley. Giving our children what they need to succeed is vital. As a teacher, a town meeting member, and a youth organizer, I have been driven to support families in helping their children succeed – to learn and grow and become well-rounded participants in our community. I’m a detail-oriented team player who will hit the ground running to serve the needs of kids and our town, always seeking out diverse points of view before making an informed decision.
And we have many decisions and issues facing us— growing enrollments, the logistics of replacing the high school, reducing student stress, and addressing diversity and inclusion concerns to name just a few. It can seem daunting, but I don’t look at it that way. As a town, we are starting a journey full of challenges, giving us the opportunity to come together and achieve something great. I want to be a part of the answer and work with the new superintendent to propel our children, our schools, and our community forward into a strong future. The solutions are out there.
I look forward to earning your support. Please visit www.scottbokun.com for more information.
