SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Sandra M. Fryc, of 21 Pheasant Hill Drive, has announced she is seeking re-election to the Shrewsbury School Committee. Sandy has served on the committee since 2008, and is currently the chair of the committee. She also served as chair in 2010. Sandy received an MBA from Assumption College in 1993 and a BS in Business Management from Fitchburg State College in 1984. She is a Senior Dispute Resolution Consultant for Unum Insurance.
She has been a town meeting member since 2003 and is a member of the Shrewsbury Education Foundation, a volunteer group that provides funding for school enrichment grants. Sandy said, “The Shrewsbury Public Schools continue to be good fiscal stewards of the taxpayer’s investment in education. However, it has become increasingly difficult due to legal mandates and inflationary costs. Inadequate funding has resulted in increased class sizes, as well as reductions in programming and instructional materials. Student success is always my first priority, and our district has consistently looked to increase student achievement while striving in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible to deliver services. I will remain diligent to this mission, and I am committed to maintaining Shrewsbury’s tradition of excellence in education.” “My education, leadership skills, professional background in dispute resolution, and volunteer roles in the schools and in the community provide me with a solid foundation that allows me to evaluate the priorities of our schools and community. The past six years has given me the opportunity to analyze the school budget and work effectively with school personnel and community members, as well as elected officials in Shrewsbury and at the state level, to understand and respond to the challenges faced by our schools. I will listen to the concerns of all members of our community, partner with all stakeholders and work diligently to obtain the necessary level of funding to provide all students with the best possible education.”
Sandy and her family have lived in Shrewsbury since 1992. Her son is a senior at Lasell College and will graduate in May. Her daughter is a freshman at Catholic University. They are both proud graduates of the Shrewsbury Public Schools. “My family’s experiences have given me insight into the issues and concerns facing Shrewsbury’s students, parents and residents.” For more information please go to SandraFryc.com or contact the Committee to Re-Elect Sandra Fryc at (508) 842-7522 or by e-mal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
