Wilson Earns Chaperone Endorsement

Chaperone is pleased to endorse Amanda Wilson for GIPS Board of Education Ward A.

Amanda and her husband Jonathan have made Grand Island home for the past ten years.

They have 5 children, ages 14, 12, 10, 8, and 6 who attend GIPS.

Amanda has a degree in Sociology, is an RN, and served as a substitute teacher at GIPS last year.

Her community involvement includes:
* Patient & Family Advisory Council at CHI/St. Francis (2016-2022)
* Board of Directors at CHI/St. Francis (2019-2022)
* GIPS Parent Advisory Council (2017-2022)
* Youth Sunday School teacher
* Former foster parent
* GIPS Substitute Teacher (2021-22)

Amanda offers a very unique perspective of GIPS. She has five school-aged children and last year was employed by GIPS as a substitute teacher. She knows precisely how the teachers feel within our district not only because of her recent experience as a teacher but also from years of volunteering daily in her children's classrooms - and she has served on volunteer groups who have communicated directly to GIPS Administration about concerns through her time on the GIPS Parent Advisory Council.

Her passion and energy for the educational experience of children is evident when visiting with her; and her empathy for the teachers is second to none. We are very pleased to have her on the team and look forward to everyone having the pleasure of interacting with her. She will be an amazing advocate for parents and teachers.
