My name is Stephanie Conklin-Cole and I have lived in the Monroe-Woodbury Community for all of my life. I am a graduate of Monroe-Woodbury High School, having also attended Pine Tree and the MWMS. I have two children; my daughter graduated in 2020 and is currently attending college, and my son will graduate in 2022.
I have been an active member in the PTA since my daughter was in Sapphire, actively working on various committees. I am also the Coordinator for the Monroe-Woodbury Community Coalition – which strives to address the issues related to drug and alcohol use and create a healthy and safe environment. The coalition is comprised of students and community members, and actively working with the M-W School District.
The most critical issue facing the district today is the social/emotional component for students. My focus has always been and will always be student’s overall success on all fronts – academically, socially, psychologically, mentally. The social/emotional piece is often forgotten and spoken little of.
I am honored to have this opportunity. I would proudly serve this community and use my experiences in business as well as being a single parent to help make proper decisions for the Monroe-Woodbury School District.
