Larkin elected to School Board

Sherri LarkinSherri Larkin has been elected to fill the Snohomish School District Board of Directors post recently vacated by Sarah Adams. Larkin will be sworn into office at the Wednesday, December 13, School Board meeting.

Larkin resides in the district with her husband Gary and is the mother to five adult children. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from University of Puget Sound. Larkin is currently a local substitute teacher. She has served her community in volunteer roles with Glacier Peak High School, Hope Creek Backpacks for Kids, and Gold Creek Community Church.

Larkin noted her vision for public education will include “focusing on fundamental academic skills of reading, writing, and math will give students confidence to develop critical thinking skills to be applied in every area of learning. I also believe partnering the teacher with the family unit is critical for a student’s highest achievement of academic and social development. Students are most successful when they have support in school and at home. I have witnessed first-hand fostering transparent classroom communication with parental involvement creates a positive learning culture. I will stay focused on building a strong foundation of academics and family inclusion to achieve this vision.”

Representing District 4, Adams was appointed to the Snohomish School District School Board of Directors in August 2022 after Brandy Hekker decided to step down from the post mid-term. At that time, the School Board was tasked with appointing a replacement to serve through the next regularly scheduled board election. The District 4 Board Member position was decided in the November 7, 2023, General Election with Larkin winning the election.
