I've had three children graduate from Simley High School. All three went to Iowa State University for engineering. Kyle is still at Iowa State starting his Junior year. Cori and Justin both live in Chicago and had multiple job offers in November prior to graduating in May. I attribute their strong educational foundation to their time in ISD 199. I tell everyone I meet that the best part about ISD 199 is the multiple opportunities your children have to participate in. All of my children were in 3-4 different activities every year while attending ISD 199, you don't find that in every district.

As a board member, my favorite days are graduation and BEST Foundation Scholarship banquet.

I love shaking the hands of those successful students who are walking across the Simley High School stage to receive their diplomas.
