To the editor:

Scott Kuykendall will make an excellent Stanislaus County of Education superintendent. I have known Scott for over 30 years. He was raised in a small agricultural community and is bilingual. He has experience in large districts and small districts in our area and understands the different needs, which will help him serve all students in Stanislaus County.

Given his compassion for all students in our communities and his qualifications, I encourage all to vote for Scott Kuykendall.

Scott has classroom teacher experience, school site administration experience, local school district office experience, and county office experience. I look forward to seeing what he can do for our county in the position of superintendent.
