Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education President Jennifer Churchfield was surprised during the regular board meeting on March 11, when the Community Asset Project (CAP) honored her as an Asset Champion. CAP Board members Steve Cohen, Karen Fisher, Capt. Jerry Rhodes, Janise McNally, Lisa Reddel and Dr. Scott Siegfried surprised Churchfield during the public comments portion of the meeting.
“Mrs. Churchfield has always focused her time, energy and talents on supporting our 51,000 students, their parents, and schools,” said Cohen. “Whether dealing with school finance issues, meeting with administrators or listening closely to parents, Mrs. Churchfield brings positive energy, integrity and an unwavering dedication to doing what is best for kids. She epitomizes the developmental assets in her daily work and volunteerism.”
CAP also recognized Churchfield’s work on the campaign to pass bond and budget questions 3A & 3B in November 2012.
“Your steadfast leadership and advocacy was critical in securing essential resources to provide the best educational opportunities for all children in the Cherry Creek School District,” continued Cohen.
Churchfield, who is in her eighth and final year on the Board of Education, has also served as a PTO president and president of the Cherry Creek Community Legislative Network.
"Thank you for your tireless efforts and countless hours as a leader, Board of Education member, communicator, involved and caring parent, and advocate for our students, staff, and parents,” said Cohen. “You are a true Asset Champion.”
