All too often, we only hear the negative side of education in Arizona. Quality schools are vital to childhood development and student success, which is why it gives me great pleasure to announce that another District 7 school has been recognized for it’s excellence. Cactus Shadows High School was recently named an A+ School of Excellence by the Arizona Education Foundation. Join me in congratulating the hard work and dedication of our administrators, teachers and students. I will continue to work on your behalf to help make Arizona’s schools the best in the nation.
