Teri Ditslear, wife of Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear and Noblesville High School graduate, announced Aug. 23 that she will file for one of two vacant at-large seats on the Noblesville Schools Board of Trustees.
The deadline for candidates to file is noon Aug. 24. As of press time, only one candidate had officially filed, Daniel Joseph Bill.
“My children are Noblesville Schools’ graduates, and my grandchildren are enrolled in Noblesville Schools,” Ditslear stated. “As a parent, grandparent and active member in the community, I care deeply for our children and want them to have a positive educational experience where they feel safe, nurtured and are challenged intellectually.”
Currently, Ditslear serves on the Noblesville Diversity Committee. She also is president of Noblesville Helping Hands, which holds fundraising activities to support local organizations and nonprofits.
Ditslear graduated from NHS in 1976 before earning a bachelor’s degree in human service from Saint Mary of the Woods College. She also graduated from the Lutheran School of Theology, Midwest Division. She is the pastor of Roots of Life Community Church in Noblesville.
“We have strong leadership in Supt. Beth Niedermeyer, and with the principals and teachers at our schools, we are improving the educational outcomes in our students,” Ditslear stated. “There is no doubt that great things are happening at Noblesville Schools, but there is the need for better supports for our most vulnerable students. I am committed to helping sustain our progress and ensure that it benefits every school and every student in our community.”
