Please join us in reelecting Kari Williams!

Education is Kari Williams’ lifelong passion. Kari, the current Richland School Board President, earned her Master’s degree in Education while working as a public school teacher. Now a stay-at-home mom of five children who attend elementary, middle, and high schools within the Richland School District, Kari is deeply invested in the success of our schools. Kari’s first priority has been and will always be students.

Kari believes parents are vital for student academic success. During the frustrating COVID shutdowns, she was the only board member who gave a voice to families by fighting to open our schools to give our students an in-person learning option. Kari will continue to champion her initiative to overcome COVID learning losses by prioritizing every child reading on grade level. She will also continue to support our community’s family values as she pushes the district to keep our classrooms a place where all children feel safe to learn and where the instruction is focused on teaching our children how to think— not what to think.

Support student success by voting for Kari!
