The AESHSEA recommends Steve Frost, Fei Shang and Gary Gorson for the District 125 School Board election. The following statement is attributable to AESHSEA President Jason Carlson:

“We believe Steve Frost, Fei Shang and Gary Gorson are the best candidates to continue to serve our students, our school and our community. That’s why we are recommending them to serve on the District 125 School Board. We are a top-ranked school. We need a board that will not only maintain our continued excellence, but also embrace new ideas that foster inclusion.

We recommend maintaining that excellence.”
