School safety and security are important to all parents. Cole Wist is a parent of one of my students, and he is also my State Representative. When the horrific Parkland shooting happened earlier this year, Cole reached out to me to discuss how he could be helpful in making our campus more secure. Over the course of the year, Cole and I have met several times, and he has provided strong input and support for keeping our students safe. I find it persuasive when leaders back up words with action. Cole Wist shows up and he leads.
