I admire Cebrian for making this decision and putting her beliefs into action. I have known Shawnneece for over 15 years and she is a wonderful, caring person and I believe she be a great addition to the Sequoia Union High School District school board.

This is wonderful! I'm sure the students of color, as well as caucasian students will benefit from the decisions of a more diverse board. I don't know either of these 2 ladies, but I will vote for Shawneece. Kudos to Jacqui. I'm sure you will be there to support her.

I know Shawneece and think she will make a wonderful board member for the new Area E! I also know Jacqui and admire and respect her decision and her reasoning. Our community is lucky to have both these women involved in our schools!
