"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. … Intelligence plus

character—

that is the goal

of true education.”

- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

JOANI FARNSWORTH STEVENS
for DAVIS COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD

Thank you for taking time to learn about me and my views as a candidate for Davis County School Board (SB2)

Why Vote Joani?

To put it simply, I care about our students and want to develop a community where our children can thrive.

 

As a native to Davis County (and graduate of Viewmont High School) my roots here run deep. My husband and I met in high school and are thrilled to be raising our family in the same community where we grew up. 

I, like many of you, am the beneficiary of teachers and educators who invested in me and my education as a student. Now, I am grateful for the teachers, staff and administrators who mentor my children and help guide them in their educational endeavors. 

 

I am running for Davis County School Board because I care deeply about providing a quality education for every student and feel compelled to perpetuate the ideal that every student matters and deserves the best possible education we can provide.

Professional Approach

Through every stage of my life, I have always been passionate about getting involved and contributing in a positive way. I have served in professional, elected, volunteer, and service organizations, delivering impactful results.

I like to think outside the box and ask constructive questions. I am driven to create workable solutions and roll up my sleeves when confronted with challenges.

I am known for my laugh and encouraging attitude when working with others. I am a self-motivated goal setter with a can-do attitude. I love taking a vision and executing it into reality.

About Me

I have a great appreciation for the teachers and faculty in Davis School District and have tried to offer my support where I can. I have served as a room parent, substitute teacher, reading helper and in numerous volunteer leadership positions, including PTA president at the junior high and high school levels.

I am currently serving as the Senior Council PTA President, and on the Centerville Junior High Community Council.

I have volunteered on the production team of our elementary school's play for the last seven years and am currently serving as director of the school play.  

I am always working to improve professionally and last year was selected for a returnship (like an internship) in Lieutenant Governor Henderson’s office. I have a great appreciation for our government and the process we follow to create and amend laws.

I am not tied to any groups or affiliations; I am not running with an agenda. I believe in bringing all voices to the table to find workable solutions to problems. While I might not agree with someone's opinion, I believe I am better off for having listened with the intent to better understand where they are coming from. I believe we build better and stronger communities when we can disagree without being disagreeable and effectively work together with respect for each other. 

I truly enjoy investing in the students in our community and cheering them on in life. I believe they deserve our best efforts, especially when it comes to providing them a quality education.

 

Running for office is a step outside my comfort zone, but I care too much about the future of our students and public education to not run.

 

Thank you for taking time to learn more about me.

I would love your support!
