Editor,

Scott Kuykendall - Success for ALL is a motto I have seen Scott demonstrate for more than decade in his many roles in public education in Stanislaus County. The shear breadth of his experience qualifies him to become the Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools. Scott has had a major impact on all forms of learning in Stanislaus County schools and most especially so in the educational options he has worked to provide for students who do not fit the one-size-fits-all educational model.

Scott has been innovative in starting vocational education programs to prepare young and adult students to contribute through productive and rewarding careers in our county. The programs he began and oversaw have become models for other counties.

Area employers offer many of the vocational training students jobs even before they complete their programs. This is a benchmark of success for both the students and the effectiveness of these programs. Scott will continue to meet the challenges ahead and continue to offer innovative ways to prepare all students for success. For many students this might mean a higher degree, a return to education through vocational training, or earning a high school diploma as an adult. These paths will help all students to successful careers. A vote for Scott Kuykendall means a vote for the success of ALL in Stanislaus County.
