To the Editor:

I met Arthy Bennett volunteering at Tewksbury school events. I have worked with her on the school PAC’s and the TMHS All Night Long Senior Celebration. I have come to know her as a hard working, intelligent and kind person. She will be a great addition to the Tewksbury School Committee. 

Arthy is wife, a mom and a Senior Staff Engineer at General Electric where she has worked for over 25 years. Her work and volunteer endeavors through GE have given her leadership, collaborative work, and cost analysis skills. Outside her busy beautiful family, she easily balances her full work schedule, volunteer events and meetings. 

The Tewksbury School System and students have benefitted from Arthy’s giving spirit. She has donated countless hours to many volunteer endeavors. She is a lead member of the Tewksbury Education Foundation which rose over $150,000 to enhance Technology, Safety and Security within the Tewksbury school system. She has also been a member of the Superintendent Search Committee, the Grant Advisory Committee, Parent Advisory Committees, TMHS Principal Search, and classroom volunteer. Her volunteer work has given her an in-depth knowledge of the school department and its’ budget. This knowledge will allow her to be an immediate contributing member of the School Committee. 

While working with Arthy, I have witnessed her ability to gather input from others, suggest positive solutions and collaboratively lead groups through difficult situations. She believes that the School Committee’s focus should be on academic achievement coupled with responsible fiscal management. 

I know that Arthy’s work ethics, intelligence and dedication will benefit the student of Tewksbury at all levels. 

Join me and vote for Arthy Bennett for Tewksbury School Committee on April 2, 2016!
