Cody Schwegel is Officially Running for the Craig School Board. Read His Bio!

Hello, my name is Cody Schwegel and I am running for a 3-year seat on the School Board in Craig.

I am married to Kathryn Schwegel and we have two children in the School District. I have been a resident of Craig Alaska for 23 years.

My qualifications include: 10 years of employment at Alaska Power & Telephone. I have been a trustee for Alaska Power and Telephone ESOP Board for the last two years. I have been the Pastor of Anchor Baptist Church for the last two years. In my youth, I was involved with and helped administrate many community programs including: MADD Youth in Action, The Methamphetamine Prevention Coalition, Craig Youth Center, and Youth Adult Coalition for the Advancement of the 40 Developmental Assets.

The reason I am running for a seat on the school board is because I feel the board needs to have more relevant people that better represent the residents and parents of Craig.

The foundation our students get in our school system will be with them for the rest of their lives.

The students of today are the leaders of tomorrow!

I feel I would be a solid fit on the school board because I bring an excellent “hands on” vocational perspective. Over the past few years the school district has scaled back on its hands on vocational teaching (shop classes) and these programs are more relevant than ever in today’s changing economic environment.

I would appreciate it if the residents of Craig would vote in October to give me the chance to bring new, grounded ideas and a fresh vision to the Craig City School District!

[There are two Craig School Board seats of three years each open this year. The deadline to file for a school board seat in Craig is September 1st.]
