We did it! Thank you, Oak Park and River Forest!
Sara will be sworn in as a member of the OPRF D200 School Board on April 30, 2015. She is excited to get to work helping our high school and our community.
Sara, an experienced lawyer, is an Assistant Cook County Public Defender, a volunteer member of the Oak Park Liquor Control Review Board, and a mom. She received her BA from the University of Chicago, and her JD from Duke University School of Law. Sara is a member of Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Long an admirer of the diversity and quality of life offered by the Oak Park and River Forest communities, Sara moved to Oak Park two years ago. Her partner, Preston Jones, has long been an Oak Park resident. His two children are in Oak Park District 97 schools; one is at Brooks Middle School and the other is at Irving Elementary School in the Special Needs program. Sara and Preston are committed to educating their toddler, Shiloh, in our public schools as well. As a relative newcomer to Oak Park, Sara knows both what attracts families to our community and what should be done to strengthen and preserve those attractive qualities.
We are proud to announce that Sara has been endorsed by the OPRFHS Faculty Senate and the Wednesday Journal!
