Stefanie Craft

for School Board Position 7 at large

Background: Mom, Project Manager, Community Board Member

"I have a proven track record of advocating, funding, and managing programs to benefit our educators, students, and community."

Thirty-three years ago, my husband and I decided to plant our roots in Damascus. We raised our three sons, all of whom are products of the GBSD, along with countless other children I had the privilege to care for at my daycare. I understand the critical role a quality education can have on the trajectory of our youths’ lives, which is why I have devoted my life to serving our children.


I have a proven track record of advocating, fundraising, and managing programs to benefit our educators, students and community. I am asking for your vote, so that I can take that commitment and experience to serve families district wide.
