Sue DolphinClerkMrs. Dolphin has lived in Wittmann with her husband, Bill, for over 24 years. Although still active on several committees, she has been retired for the past 6 years. She has worked in accounting for several employers in the Valley including Sun Health, Desert Sky Pavilions, and Bill Johnson’s Restaurants. Mrs. Dolphin remembers when Grand Avenue was just a two-lane highway and “you never met another car on the drive out here.” Now we have grown from a small rural school into two large elementary campuses.“I am honored to serve on the school board and I hope to make a difference in our community. I believe that education is an investment in our community’s future and must be the most important thing that we pass on to our children. Our children must be prepared to go forth with the tools to succeed in today’s global economy and be proud to say they are from Nadaburg Unified School District. I know we can accomplish this and I hope to be a part of that.”

“My professional success follows from my education. I have been fortunate to receive the attention and care of so many people – beginning with my parents - who are knowledgeable, committed to my growth, and willing to share what they know. I can think of no better way to thank the people who helped me explore my talents than to pay forward my own efforts for the benefit of the next generation. As a board member, I will seek input from everyone who will provide it, govern responsibly, treat people respectfully, and help ensure that the resources available are used as effectively as possible.”
