Joanne Beers's dedication to Avon Schools began two decades ago. In addition to being a successful business woman, Joanne has led efforts to improve Avon Schools as a PTO Board member Thompson Brook School, Avon Middle School and Avon High School and chair of the Avon Education Foundation. She also serves on the board of the Avon Dollars for Scholars, Avon Chamber of Commerce and the Connecticut Consortium of Education Foundations. Because of her substantial experience and collaborative style, she was asked to be a member of the strategic planning group for the school district.
Joanne believes we need to be responsible in our education budgeting process to assure we get the most for the taxpayer dollars we spend and prepare Avon’s students for success in the future.
Remember to vote for Democrats Joanne Beers and Jay Spivak for Board of Education on November 5th.
