As the father of 3 school-age children and as a graduate from Marquette University High School and then from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Khary knows the district’s needs. He understands that our schools need to bring all of our children to a college-ready standard and that college costs must be made manageable for anyone who wants their children to have a better life.
With Khary Penebaker, this District’s families will finally have a Representative whose understanding of the challenges of preparing a child for college is first-hand, rather than based on rumor and distant memory. He sees the daily needs of our education systems to be strong and agile as we move from the typewriter to tablet; the cornerstone of smart growth is ensuring that people of all ages receive the education necessary to thrive in a dynamic economic marketplace.
