Birmingham, MI – Adrienne Young is one of seven people running for four open seats on the school board for Birmingham Public Schools.  The candidates for this non-partisan position are: Lori Ajlouny, Douglas Arceo, Audra Bartholomew, Corey Jacoby, Brian Jennings, Kimberly Whitman, and Adrienne Young.

“One project that I’m really interested in working on is building some official relationships between BPS and the community,” Young said.  “And we’ve already seen those a little bit…. The relationship between BPS and NEXT, which is a 50+ community and that relationship has existed for a long time and is an important one.  Actually members of NEXT volunteer in our schools and that’s really special, so I want to see more of that.  I want to see businesses have an official role with BPS and enhance our curriculum with real-world learning.  I want to see individuals help teachers out with resources.  I want to see more contribution come in to the Birmingham Education Foundation.  So just building those relationships between the district and the community, I think that’s important.”

In her interview with oc115, Young talked about volunteering with Birmingham Youth Assistance, how she would prioritize budgeting, and how being the mother of a 5 month old has inspired her to get involved in making the school district the best it can be.
