I am Doug Rowe and I am seeking my third term on the Gladbrook-Reinbeck School Board. I am currently a Corporate IT Specialist for Engineered Plastic Components. I am married to Andrea who is currently a GR Middle School teacher and we have two kids that graduated from GR. Alex, who graduated in 2006 currently lives in Gladbrook and works as System Administrator. Corissa, who graduated in 2010 and will graduate from UNI next May in Business and Business Education.
Why I am running for the School Board? There are many reasons that I am running, but these are two of them. I enjoy being on the board and the work that we do. We are limited by laws and regulations as to what we can really do, but the things the board can do are seen and experienced by almost everyone in our district. We have worked hard to provide the policies and resources to make it possible to graduate from GR with over 30 college credits. We are providing our students with internships at area businesses to gain an insight to careers. We are making improvements to our facilities that will be enjoyed for years to come.
Another reason is that I care about what happens in our community and school. Andrea and I lived here most of our lives. She graduated from Reinbeck and I graduated from Gladbrook. We have seen what happens when the community and school works together. We need to continue to work together to make Gladbrook-Reinbeck a great place to live and educate our kids.
