David Finkel announces his candidacy for Shelbyville Central Schools Board of Trustees District 4.
The direction and perception of public education is extremely important to Mr. Finkel. He believes in and trusts the talented faculty and staff that educate our children each day. He believes in upholding the Shelbyville Central Schools values of educating every child, every time, no exceptions, no excuses.
Mr. Finkel is a life-long Shelbyville resident who graduated from Shelbyville High School and Indiana University. He is married and has one daughter who is a sophomore at Shelbyville High School. In approaching his second term, Mr. Finkel understands the need for the expansion of advocacy on behalf of all constituents in public education. The issue of local control is constrained by State and National agendas. It is important to champion for our school corporation and students in any arena that will affect our district.
In 2014 Mr. Finkel earned his Master School Board Member rating from the Indiana School Board Association. This is recognition of his commitment to the highest level of continuous improvement and ongoing education as a school board member. In addition to his service to Shelbyville Central Schools, Mr. Finkel continues as a board member for Our Hospice of South Central Indiana, Strand Theatre, and the Shelbyville Board of Public Works and Safety. He has served as President of the Shelbyville Plan Commission, Shelbyville Board of Zoning Appeals, and is former commander of the Shelbyville Composite Squadron of Civil Air Patrol.
Mr. Finkel performs with the 65th Street Klezmorim and the Windiana Touring Concert Band. He also serves with the Indiana University Alumni Association, American Theatre Organ Society, Indiana Landmarks, and many other local and state organizations.
Mr. Finkel looks forward to continuing his service on the board of Shelbyville Central Schools. He is dedicated to helping the children of our community through solid stewardship of our school corporation.
