I am interested in serving on the board for the following reasons. First and foremost I agree with the mission and methods of Eagle Ridge Academy and I would like to do all I can to see that it’s successful not just this year but for many years to come. Secondly I have unique set of skills in both commercial construction project managing and commercial construction products which will allow me to assist/advise as needed as the new building moves forward in the coming year.
