Khush Brar

Having children that study in the Lynden School District matters to Khush as it gives her a first-hand experience of what the school district yields through its governance and policies. Khush comes from an agricultural background and has spent a good part of her life in Philippines and India, resulting in a diverse perspective in life, especially education.

“It is my goal to work in solidarity with the board to provide a holistic education that caters to students’ physical, mental and emotional intelligence. I believe in a ‘one size doesn’t fit all’ mentality, hence I am a strong proponent of the goal that the district should strive to bring about opportunities that empower students to hone their skills and follow their vocation beyond the district school system through performing arts, higher education or trade work.”

The school board plays an integral part in ensuring that parents, students and staff are advocated and supported in best ways possible. Parental rights, fiscal obligation, supporting staff and enabling students are the most important responsibilities of the board. There may be limitations to the power a school board holds, in accordance with legislation, however it would not deter me from carrying out my duties to the best of my ability.

Let us remember that it takes a community to build and improve our school district. I am forever thankful to be a part of this community. It is an honor to serve you all!
