My name is Allie Hughes and I am running for Oak Grove School Board. I was born and raised right here in our Oak Grove neighborhood. I grew up walking my dogs through Edenvale and Hayes Parks and playing softball games in the fields at Hayes Elementary. These neighborhoods are my home.
My commitment to public service was inspired early on by my high school ethnic studies teacher. While attending Santa Clara University, I first became involved in politics by becoming a community organizer and promoting advocacy in our communities. Over the last 3 years, I've fought to bring awareness to issues of inequity and injustice in our community. I am working with local leaders and officials to bridge the opportunity and achievement gaps that plague our education system.
As your Oak Grove School Board Trustee, I will listen to parents and fight for the needs and success of our students, teachers, and staff. I will prioritize working with you to bring positive changes of equity and ensure that every child has the tools for them to succeed in a 21st Century economy. Children are our future; we should set them up to dream big and succeed.
I’m excited to work with you as your next Oak Grove School Board Area 1 Trustee. Together, we will prepare all our children for bright and prosperous futures.
