Dear Wilmington Friends and Neighbors,
It is an honor to endorse Melissa Plowman for her candidacy for the Wilmington School Committee. I have known Melissa for approximately 5 years and have come to learn that she is caring, kind, passionate and a strong advocate for all that she believes in. Melissa has been working in the field of child/ adolescent psychology for 18 years and has a true understanding of how the pandemic has impacted students, their families and education. As a child psychologist, Melissa works closely with many local school districts to provide professional development opportunities for staff, district and school consult and program development. Her knowledge and expertise will be critical in supporting the work that lies ahead for our school district over the coming months.
As a dedicated community member, Melissa regularly volunteers her time to support the growth of our school district and community. Most recently and during the summer of 2020, she participated in the social emotional learning reopening focus group. She also volunteered her time during the 2019 Middle School principal search committee. Melissa has organized several community service projects over the past few years, including a fundraising drive that secured $5000 in donations for both the Wilmington fire station’s toy drive and Children’s Hospital in Boston. In addition, Melissa organized the efforts of a group labeled “Kids Helping Kids” that helped to collect and provide the Horizon School in Boston with school supplies. Under Melissa’s lead, this group of children were able to provide boxes of supplies for approximately 50 classrooms. Melissa is a strong collaborator and leader.
As a school administrator myself, I am confident that any school district would be lucky to have Melissa on their committee, as she is sure to have a positive impact on our schools. She will utilize her expertise in working with the public and will listen carefully to all sides before developing an opinion or making a decision. She will ensure that every decision and action reflects the best interests of every student that we serve within our community. Melissa will continue to be a strong advocate for our children and will bring a unique and important perspective to the school committee.
I invite you to join me in voting for Melissa Plowman at the polls on April 24th. For more information on her campaign, please visit her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MelissaPlowmanforWilmingtonSchoolCommittee
