OPINION: Re-elect Amal Smith to School Board


We strongly endorse Amal Smith for re-election to the School Board.

Amal has an admirable track record of volunteerism and leadership in our town from Beach Parent Organization (BPO), PEF, support groups and for the last four years as a member of the School Board, experience and leadership that is supplemented by her 28 year career in higher education.

Amal’s dedication to the Piedmont community and our schools is unwavering. Amal is not just committed to an education for all students but also to providing them with the social and emotional tools they need to succeed as young adults through high school and beyond.

Through my own volunteerism on parent club and other community boards I have worked with Amal and am continually impressed by her ability to relate to parents at all stages of their child(ren)’s education, to listen, to process copious information and to provide valuable insights, thought provoking questions and/or relevant next steps or solutions.

Amal is a strong leader and communicator whose candid responses, forethought and constructive reflection all help to better educate parents and meet the needs of our schools and our students.

Piedmont is lucky to have such an exceptional candidate willing to run for re-election. We hope you will join us in supporting Amal Smith for re-election to the School Board.

Charlotte and Mike Ero, Piedmont Residents
