Vail Daily letter: Asking for your vote

I am Carolyn Knox Keep, longtime Vail Valley local. I am writing to ask for your vote to elect me to Eagle County School Board.

I grew up the Vail Valley and am raising my family here. I was one of the first Red Sandstone Elementary School students and have a special love for Eagle County public schools. I have experienced the amazing growth of our community and am proud to be a member of our exciting history.

My son and daughter are both thriving at Battle Mountain High School and soon to graduate. Throughout their school career I have volunteered for and participated in countless activities, including Edwards Elementary School PTA, Berry Creek Middle School PTA, Battle Mountain High School Super Boosters, fundraisers, and as a trustee and volunteer event chair for the Education Foundation of Eagle County. I am currently the Parent Teacher Student Association president at Battle Mountain High School. My favorite event out of the many is the EFEC Evening of Stars honoring excellence in teaching. I am also a huge fan of BMHS games! Come hear me cheer!

Some of you may remember me as the granddaughter of The Vail Trail founder, George Knox. I would like to give back to the community what my family has received. I want all future generations to have the same quality of experience my family has had in Eagle County Schools. I have years of accounting experience at The Steadman Clinic, years of community and school relationships, and a deep passion for the quality of education for every child in Eagle County. I am especially open to listening and as your school board member will want to hear from you. My door is always open.

Give me the opportunity to pay it forward and “Keep” the great momentum of Eagle County Schools’ success by voting for Carolyn Knox Keep for Eagle County School Board.

Thank you for your support.

Carolyn Knox Keep
