Cheryl Snowdon-Eddy.

Candidate for Langley board worked for district

Cheryl Snowdon-Eddy was a secretary and board staffer for years.

A longtime former Langley school district staffer is now running for election as a trustee this fall.

Cheryl Snowdon-Eddy worked for 35 years as a school secretary and in the Langley board office, before retiring in December, she said.

“I do have a lot of front line experience with helping parents and families navigating the school system,” she said.

Her focus would be on making sure “regular kids” get what they need to succeed, she said. Special needs students are important, but the average students still need attention, said Snowdon-Eddy.

She also wanted both parents and staff members to have a voice in district decisions.

On the controversial SOGI 123 teaching resources, Snowdon-Eddy said she does not yet have a position, but will be prepared to speak about it at future all candidates meetings.

“It’s such a big issues, and there are so many sides to it,” she said.
