Letter: Help kids reach for the stars

As a 1968 graduate of Willmar High School -- probably the best class ever -- there is a soft spot in my heart for the Willmar Public Schools.

It's where I learned how to learn and gained the experience and confidence that has taken me to some very interesting places. Now that I am an educator myself, I am convinced that the education of our children is our most important civic function.

I know it's tough times. Money is tight and getting tighter. Other high priorities deserve your support, but none is more critical to the future of the region than supporting your schools.

Please help a new generation reach for the stars and vote yes twice!
