My name is Awale Farah, and I am a long-time resident of Kent. My four children are graduates of the Kent School District.
The pandemic continues to engender challenges, as the school district emerges from this crisis, I will listen to families to develop successful pathways to learning. I am motivated to bring diverse communities together to share their experiences and expectations of the Kent School District.
My community involvements are being the President of the Kent Kiwanis and a volunteer with Living Well Kent. I serve as a board member for Communities in Schools, Children’s Therapy Center, and Greater Kent Historical Society. I am also a member of the City of Kent Transportation Board and Kent Rotary.
My engineering career, including twenty years at Boeing and AT&T, developed my leadership skills through managing teams of fifty employees and overseeing a $250 million budget. I will work on the goals and mission of the Kent School District and be mindful of the financial responsibilities.
It will be exciting to create a “new normal” for our children’s education, and I look forward to working with other members of the Kent School Board I am a positive thinker who learns from the past in order to enhance the present and design a better future.
