I urge voters to support Anne Baunach for the Auburn School Board Position 4 because providing excellent education is truly her passion. She has put this passion into action for 15 years through her leadership, work and volunteer activities in our community.

Anne’s strong leadership skills are well known throughout our district because of the numerous committees she has chaired and co-chaired and education programs she has supported. For example, she spearheaded the formation of Auburn Schools Foundation. This organization has been a longtime dream of Anne’s, and her efforts in developing it for our community will bring much-needed future education funding and support.

Anne’s employment has also supported education including her work at Green River Community College and at Thrive by Five, which focuses on early childhood education. With her in-depth understanding of early learning, higher education and extensive volunteer experience, Anne is truly a “go to” person for information about education issues. She takes time to learn about programs she supports and to understand their impact on students.

Even though Anne has been recognized for her volunteer efforts including the STAR Award from Auburn School District, Ruby Award from Soroptimist International, and Alumnus of the Year from the Leadership Institute of South Puget Sound, and many more, she continues to work with a “roll up your sleeves” dedication that inspires others and gets things done. Anne’s years of experience supporting education have prepared her to serve our community as an Auburn School Board member.
