"As the Mayor of Ceres, it's important that we have a homegrown workforce that is ready for the 21st Century economy so that Ceres, and the rest of Stanislaus County can provide good, high paying jobs for our local families. As the Superintendent of Gratton School District, Shannon Sanford's focus on S.T.E.M. Education and practical, career oriented curriculum makes her uniquely qualified to lead our county office of education. That's why I'm endorsing Shannon Sanford for Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools"
Chris Vierra- Mayor, City of Ceres
"As a fellow School District Superintendent who has worked with Shannon Sanford for over a decade, I know she has the hands on knowledge and experience to lead our Stanislaus County Schools. She is directly responsible for recently implementing a STEAM program at Gratton School exemplifying her continued dedication and vision to make sure students are prepared for the future. She has a proven track record of success as Gratton's test scores are annually among the highest in the County. Her results speak for themselves. For these reasons, I endorse Shannon Sanford for our next Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools."
