It’s all about family for new Clintondale school board members

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Stacey Kubbe and Ron Fisher know the impact made by Clintondale Community Schools because they lived it themselves, either personally or vicariously through their own families.

Kubbe and Fisher earned the first- and second-most votes, respectively, in last November’s school board election. In January, they were officially sworn in to serve the beginning of their six-year terms.

“We are thrilled to have Stacey and Ron on our school board as we continue providing all Dragons with a high-quality, 21st-century education that prepares them for bright futures — whether that means college, technical school, apprenticeships or jobs right after graduation,” Clintondale Community Schools Superintendent Greg Green said in a press release. “Working together, our school board will continue to help prepare all Dragons for success before, during and after school.”

Kubbe is a 1990 Clintondale graduate, as well as the daughter of two Clintondale graduates. Soon, all five of her children will have graduated from the high school.

She ran for the school board after spending seven years as the Rainbow Elementary Parent Teacher Organization president. 

“There’s a lot Clintondale has to offer our students, and we have a great community,” Kubbe said. “We have a great team working for our kids. Being a small community, you get to know the teachers, and the teachers get to know your family, and you get to know each other on a more personal level.”

Fisher is the father of three Clintondale graduates. After previously serving as a board member between 1990 and 2002, he left Michigan, but recently returned to the state and ran for another term.

“Students thrive when they receive an education that exposes them to a bit of everything, and we’ve got that at Clintondale,” Fisher said. “The entire Clintondale Community Schools staff is accessible. No one is unreachable.”

Kubbe and Fisher join a school board led by President Jason Davidson, whose term ends in 2020. Other members include Beverly Lewis-Moss and Lois A. Murray — whose terms also end in 2020 — and Michael T. Scott, whose term concludes in 2022.
