Merritt College congratulates Dr. Jennifer Shanoski for her election to the Berkeley School Board! You may know her as a chemistry instructor at Merritt or as PFT President, but you can now add the title of elected official to her name. When asked why she wanted to pursue this office, Jennifer shared, “I am running for Berkeley School Board because I am passionate about public education and community service. I feel so fortunate that my kids have the stability and strength of Berkeley’s schools and I want to ensure that our schools remain effective, inclusive, diverse, and dynamic.” Well done, Jennifer! The Merritt community wished you great success and we know that you will bring great passion and commitment to your new post!
