3 Ways to Support Our Campaign:

Dear Friends,

Shant Sahakian for Glendale School Board HeadshotAs a proud product of our Glendale Unified School District and lifelong resident of the City of Glendale, I am excited to announce my candidacy for Glendale School Board District D in the upcoming April 2017 election.

I was fortunate to have received a great public school education from our District. I walked the halls of our schools, performed in my elementary school orchestra, played on my high school baseball team, and made lifelong friends along the way. As a result of my inspiring teachers, safe learning environment, and invaluable educational opportunities, I was able to start a successful business in the art and technology sector at an early age. Over the years, I have had the honor of serving our local youth by working with charitable organizations, school leaders, and fellow community members who transform lives every day through their dedicated work.

I’m running for Glendale School Board because I understand the importance of a great public education and I want to ensure that each and every one of our students have access to the educational opportunities, resources, and support they need to reach their ultimate potential.

My goal is to ensure that the high-quality education I was provided as a student is strengthened, improved, and modernized for the next generation of Glendale Unified School District students. I’ve seen first-hand what our students can achieve when they’re given the support they need to succeed and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to the community that has given me so much.

I would be honored to serve as your Glendale School Board member and I am looking forward to the opportunity to earn your trust, support, and vote.

Respectfully,

Signature
Shant Sahakian

Candidate
Glendale School Board District D
