I met Eydie Pryzant almost 19 years ago when she moved to Maine with her husband and young son. As Eydie’s family grew, now three children ages 15 to 20, she immersed herself in the Falmouth schools as a parent volunteer. Throughout the years, Eydie has regularly attended School Board meetings, to keep herself informed on the progress and direction of our schools. When Superintendent George Entwistle initiated a community dialog, Eydie consistently participated. Additionally, she worked many hours behind the scenes. She was asked to join the Math Curriculum Task Force and the Advanced Placement study group at the high school. Many students at the high school today are benefiting right now from the work Eydie did, behind the scenes, on these two committees which implemented an accelerated math track and a greater selection of AP courses. Eydie has always emphasized that Falmouth students need to have opportunities to remain competitive, particularly in a world economy. Aware of economic uncertainties, she will prioritize in a fiscally responsible manner to maintain Falmouth’s high academic standing.
Please join me in the logical step of embracing Eydie Pryzant’s talents, energy and long-standing commitment and vote for her on June 14 for Falmouth School Board.
