My name is Caressa Milgrove, and I am running for the Vancouver School Board, Position 1.

For the last several years, I have dedicated myself to speaking for what our kids need. Through countless conversations, I have listened to parents, teachers, policy makers, and community stakeholders about the issues they consider paramount in our school system. I have passionately committed myself to advocating not only for my own kids, but for school children throughout the state through my work towards lengthening school lunch times. I believe that the health and wellbeing of the Whole Child should be the first and foremost priority of the district in every decision that it makes.

As a Mom of two children in the district, I am deeply invested in the future of Vancouver Public Schools. I believe that my devotion to service and equity, my fresh perspective, and experience navigating the various levels of government will be assets to the Vancouver School Board. To better support what our kids and families need, I would be honored to serve as a voice representing our community.
