Letter: Vote Pillen for school board

Dear Rochelle community members, 

I want to talk to you about voting for Laurie Pillen for Rochelle Township High School District 212 school board. As a former English teacher from 1964-1992, I have known Laurie at RTHS and in our community for nearly 40 years. If you want to sustain RTHS board excellence, then I recommend voting for Laurie. She has a distinguished career as a school counselor and speech coach. She has served under four superintendents. She has worked closely with students, faculty, staff and school board members through multiple generations. Her valuable educational experience will sustain the school board's excellence — as the school board has always had excellent members with strong knowledge of the Rochelle community's needs. Pillen is an asset to the future of our fine Rochelle community. I urge you to vote for Laurie Pillen for school board.

-Harvey Folkerts, RTHS English teacher 1964-1992
