I write this letter to support my dear friend Matthew Hay for Galveston ISD school board. Matthew is a truly dedicated individual who is selfless with his time and deeply committed to improving our schools. He has served on the board since 2011, and held the position of president the past five years. While serving on the board, Matthew actively participates and educates himself on the issues facing our schools by talking with teachers, families and his constituents. As president, Matthew serves as chairman of the finance committee and regularly attends policy and curriculum meetings.
What better person than a pediatrician to know the social, emotional and educational needs of our children? He has also been a youth soccer coach for 12 years, and has been actively involved in numerous leadership positions (past school PTO president, past trustee of the Moody Permanent Endowment Fund). I know him to be a person who is willing to address the tough challenges facing our schools today.
Matthew deeply cares about Galveston and our children and has selflessly devoted countless hours in support of improving education and our community. I encourage you to vote to re-elect Matthew Hay for Galveston Independent School District position 5-E.
