The South Brunswick School Board election is on Nov. 6, 2012, and I am proud to endorse Azra Baig, Preserve at Princeton Walk resident and my good friend, for one of the candidates for three vacated seats on the school board.
Born in Ohio and went to public school in Medina, Ohio, Azra was very active in student council and national honor society from the beginning. She received her nursing degree from Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio. Azra worked at Cleveland Clinic in the cardiac and emergency departments.
She has been a resident of South Brunswick, married and has two daughters in school, one in 10th grade and one in 8th grade. Both kids went to South Brunswick's elementary schools.
Azra works at UMCP in the emergency department and she is also a substitute Nurse in the school system. She has been very active in the PTO and Viking Athletic Club. Both of her daughters played soccer, basketball and track and field and she supports the sports with a great passion. They also participated in the band through middle school.
Azra stays very active in her professional and personal life by dedicating her time in voluntary work and helping others and by working out to stay healthy. She is on the board of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey.
Azra will bring lot of experience to the school board where we need some new innovative ideas to tackle fiscal and personnel challenges in 21st century. We need some positive changes in our schools and status-quo will bring our education system down and ruin the future of hard working parents and student in South Brunswick.
Azra will represent diversity in the township to include hardworking parents, teachers, programs such as music and sports and she will help build the partnership through different communities to bring our town top in education.
