Mickey Mathew joined the Senior Surfers in January 2023. She says she has received so much help from the computer lab that she would like to give back and show her appreciation by serving on the board. However, she doesn’t wish to take that opportunity away from anyone else. She says “Since I've never served on a board nor do I have much computer knowledge, I only want to be on the ballot if I’m not contesting anyone for a limited position.”

While still teaching, he completed his master’s Degree in 1975. He maintained a class website that usually had more hits than the district site.
