SPRINGVILLE — Allison Duwe has announced her plan to run for an open seat on the Springville-Griffith Institute Board of Education.

“I am excited to be your next school board representative,” Duwe said. “School just isn’t what it used to be. Testing is replacing teaching. Unfunded mandates are forcing our district to cut critical academic and arts programs. These are issues I am passionate about tackling.

“I grew up in Springville and graduated from S-GI,” Duwe said. “I’ve spent the last seven years running a non-profit with an anti-poverty and economic development focus. I have experience working with unions, elected officials and government agencies, businesses, faith leaders and community organizations. I know how to bring people together and get things done.”

Duwe recently stepped down from her position as a nonprofit entity’s executive director, to focus on raising her three children and to get involved in the community.

Her campaign is endorsed by Revitalize Springville, a local political organization with a stated focus on community revitalization.
