Now let’s introduce the candidates!

Adriana Kuhn has strong roots in St. Charles County and she’s very excited to serve this community that has meant so much to her during her life. A graduate of Truman University with a degree in Psychology, she has worked as a stockbroker and is currently a proud business owner. She has two children in school and has seen first hand the dedication of our teachers and principles. Adriana’s top priorities on the board will be improving academic results, carefully overseeing our budget, and supporting parental rights.

“I look forward to working collaboratively with our teachers, administrators, parents, and citizens of our community while on the board. The experiences our children have during these formative years significantly impact the rest of their lives. In our schools we must strive to create the optimal environment for each of our children to thrive.”
