HENRY CLAMPITT for Red Clay School Board

Senator David P. Sokola, Delaware Senate District 8 and Chair, Senate Education Committee

I have had the pleasure of working with Henry on two important efforts in Delaware education.  In 2015 we both served on the General Assembly’s Enrollment Preferences Task Force (HB-90), and in 2016 Henry was very helpful to the Senate Education Committee in seeking improvements to two charter school audit bills (HB-154 and SB-171) which resulted in bipartisan support for HB-435 being signed into law.

In my experience, Henry came to these efforts well prepared, ready to listen and willing to advocate for what he felt are the best solutions.  He has extensive experience and knowledge of public school matters and financial oversight, and I have no doubt that the Red Clay community will be lucky to have him as their advocate on the board.  He is an excellent candidate: well-informed, experienced, collaborative and sincere.

Henry has my endorsement for the Red Clay School Board!

Mary Teeter, Gateway Lab School 7th Grade ELA Teacher

Henry has been an effective and active participant of the GLS Board. He has an incredible depth of knowledge that allows him to connect and build on important ideas- pushing the organization toward positive and productive growth.

Zachary Plerhoples, Odyssey Charter School Physical Ed. Teacher – LC

Henry is a smart, hard working person with high moral and ethical integrity. The RCCSB and everyone in District will be lucky to have him.

I served with Henry Clampitt on the Board of Directors of the Charter School of Wilmington. Henry was the most diligent, hardest-working Board member I served with in my nearly five years on the Board. Not only was he a great Board member in his own right; he made the rest of us better. When you see someone working that hard and taking his responsibilities that seriously, you raise your game so you don't feel like a slacker.

Other than my late mother -- a high-school librarian -- I can't think of any one who would make a better school-board member than Henry Clampitt. As a Red Clay resident whose property value depends on the quality of Red Clay schools, I will definitely vote for Henry on Tuesday.
