“It is a privilege to give back to the Westfield community by serving on the Board of School Trustees,” Rebecca said. “My passion for supporting the youth of our community, coupled with my accounting and construction background, makes this a natural fit. My husband and I grew up in Sheridan, settling in Carmel after college; we moved to Westfield in 2002 specifically for the schools. A strong school district is at the heart of every successful community. I'm honored to do my part as we continue to build on a strong foundation while our district grows and expands.”
