I’ve known Dr Robert Barberee for more than 20 years. I’ve worked with Robert both personally and professionally. I respect the way Robert approaches challenges and unsolved opportunities. He is a good listener and very analytical when faced with a challenge. I’ve always been impressed with his ability to interpret trends and adjust his focus based on the information provided.
I’ve seen Robert become active in this community over the years and applaud his sense of service. Recently he selflessly served over 8 months along with other community members on the SISD facilities planning committee. I observed Robert and these community members spend their personal time to collaborate and put forward a unified plan to further the educational learning environment in SISD.
Robert approached me after hearing I would not be seeking re-election to ask what I thought about him running for trustee. I asked him why he wanted to run, his response “… to serve the students in the District”, my response “good answer “.
I know Robert will commit the time, energy and resources it takes to further the goals and values of SISD.
Thank you for your consideration,
