Starlene Enfield for Steilacoom School Board

"I will give a voice to other moms, dads and extended families, supporting their children throughout our district."
As a Mother of two girls who attended Steilacoom schools from kindergarten to through high school I am so very proud of what they have accomplished with the support of our great community. Andrea is a 2013 SHS graduate and a 2017 graduate of Gonzaga University. Claire is a 2017 SHS graduate starting at Gonzaga in the fall.
For the past 17 years my husband, an elementary school principal, and I have enjoyed serving as parent volunteers in every way we could. It has been the joy of my life to be a part of their education supporting my girls, their classmates, the teachers and administrators who make our schools great!

I believe in the power of education and the importance of community service. I was the first in my family to graduate college and earn a master’s degree. Using my undergraduate degree in Social Services and Masters of Education degree in guidance and counseling I have worked in the field of vocational rehabilitation for 26 years. As a Case Manager, Manager, Quality Manager and recently as a National Trainer I have taken on a variety of roles. I understand the challenges a mother and father face as they work to support their family while committing themselves to staying involved in their children’s schooling.
Supporting our community through volunteering has always been important to my husband and me. As a child and young adult I was given opportunities by a supportive community that made a difference in my life, and that is a primary driver of my desire to volunteer today.

I have enjoyed volunteering in the Steilacoom School District for the last 17 years. These volunteer experiences include: Parent Volunteer K-12 in the Steilacoom School District, Parent Leader at Steilacoom High School, Fund Raising Leader for SHS Clubs and Activities, Parent Representative on principal interview teams and Superintendent Advisory Committee, Crab Feed Sports Auction – Volunteer, Choir and Band Chaperone for several in-state and out-of-state school trips, Steilacoom Historical Museum Association volunteer for Steilacoom Dines Out, Chili Cook off, July 4th Ice Cream Social and Salmon Bake, YMCA Volunteer, St John Bosco and St. Frances Cabrini Youth Group Volunteer.
