Paige Bostwick is on the Nov. 6 general election ballot for Position 1 on the Tarkington ISD board of trustees. Bostwick says she is excited to run for the position and considers it a great opportunity to give back to a community that has given so much to her and her family.
Bostwick grew up in Tarkington and is a proud graduate from Tarkington High School in 1988. She went on to play collegiate basketball at Oral Roberts University while earning a BS in Education (HPER K-12) and a Masters in Business with an emphasis in non-profit management.
She and her husband, Preston, were blessed with two beautiful children – Braden and Jessica.
“I have been fortunate to manage, teach, coach and lead several organizations, teams and groups throughout my life and currently serve as one of the associate pastors under my parents at Liberty Church in Cleveland,” she said. “One of the reasons I believe God has placed me on earth is to help encourage people to walk in their potential. I love to help people win!”
Bostwick and her husband are passionate about empowering and mentoring the next generation to become all they were created to be. In this endeavor, they developed AIM Team Camp, located on Tarkington Prairie.
“I am looking forward to the ways I can add my voice, creativity, experience and influence to help TISD continue to serve our students as they grow and excel,” she said. “I am also interested to look for ways we can better prepare our students to pursue their dreams as they impact the field of study or trade they may choose upon graduation.”
If elected, her goals as a school board member include:
- Promoting the sharpening our skills in teamwork, problem solving, decision making and communication.
- Pursuing resources that will better equip TISD to continue to provide a quality education for all students.
- Promoting improved communication between the district and parents, students and teachers, employees and our community.
- Advancing the district’s growth strategy for the coming years to provide the necessary resources students need to learn and compete with excellence.
“I am passionate about empowering the next generation, cultivating champions and investing into the community and school district I love,” Bostwick said. “I would love your support and more importantly covet your prayers as we move forward.”
