“I am excited for this new opportunity to serve the Arlington community as a school board member,” said Fay. “I am an advocate of public education and will strive to strengthen and expand opportunities for students, parents and teachers as we work together to raise successful, thoughtful thinkers.”

Rosson has worked in the public sector for the past 20 years, leading information technology departments and long-range planning efforts. He is the treasurer for the Arlington High School (AHS) Booster Club, supports the AHS drama and music programs, and also coaches his son’s basketball team.

“I am looking forward to working with our community to understand the decisions and work we have ahead of us and to fully support our students and staff,” said Rosson. “I believe that our schools are most successful when there is a strong partnership between the community and schools. Whether you have children in the district or not, we all benefit when our schools are thriving.”
