Nicole Buhrman is announcing her candidacy for School Board of Directors, Region Five which includes precincts Chambersburg 1-1 (St. Paul United Methodist Church), Greene 2 (Scotland Community Center), and Greene 5 (Mt.
Pleasant United Brethren Church). Buhrman has lived in Chambersburg/ Fayetteville area with her husband for 13 years. They have two children who currently attend elementary school in CASD.
Buhrman’s interest in the school board began at the start of the pandemic. However, she has always had a passion for education. As a former employee of Washington County Public Schools, she worked as a special education paraprofessional while earning a bachelor’s degree. Then she went on to earn a master’s degree in elementary education from Frostburg State University. Upon graduation, Buhrman was able to long- term sub and transition into a permanent teaching position.
After having their children, Buhrman resigned from teaching to be a full-time parent and volunteer and is now hoping to serve her community as a member of the school board. “I will advocate for access to student services and resources as well as support the district in attracting and retaining quality educators.”
