Trustee Chris Ellis was an elemental lead in supporting Storefront School, which is an adult-transition school supporting students, with disabilities, skills, and knowledge needed to be independent in the workforce. Working with Trustee Ellis was very easy as he listened to the needs of my mother, my brother and parents of past and current Storefront Students. He understood the importance of the programming at Storefront and how it benefited the students in their future success. Due to his leadership in bringing parents and students together to have their voices heard, Storefront remains open and continues to provide a safe learning space for adult students. He is empathetic and understands the importance of supporting strong and effective programs for students with special needs. He is a Trustee that I can stand by and vouch for because he is hardworking, understanding, caring and will always do what is best for the students.
