Welcome to new BOE member Karen Vassell-Campbell

Karen Vassell in nursing scrubsHelp us welcome our newest member of the Board of Education, Karen Vassell-Campbell! Karen was appointed to the Board of Education to fill the remainder of the term for outgoing member Glenn Connan. Her term runs through Oct. 2021.
 
Karen sent the following message to our community:
 
"Hello all, it’s truly a pleasure to be elected to serve on the Naugatuck BOE for the remainder of this term.
I am the beneficiary of a solid and firm Education and I continue to grow and excel in my career as a result. It is this drive and passion that I intend to utilize, in supporting the vision of the Naugatuck BOE as it strives to help the teachers implement teaching and learning strategies, to empower all enrolled students of Naugatuck School District.
In addition to fully supporting the Schools Superintendent and the entire school community in this current school year, where we are faced with the daunting task of navigating a pandemic, of such magnitude, (COVID-19), I definitely also intend to ensure that where there are areas of health concerns, I make valid suggestions for improvement, remembering that I am also a mother and do share the concerns of all parents for the health and safety of our children.
Finally, I hope my presence on the school board, will definitely highlight the fact that Naugatuck is changing and evolving to meet the needs of all people, cultures, and ethnicities. This shows growth representation and inclusion of all. That’s what makes for good democracy, and that’s definitely the culture of this family enriched Town called “Naugatuck."
