CONTRIBUTED BY ANNE EGAN
After nineteen consecutive years as a parent and volunteer in the Cherry Creek School District, Anne Egan has announced her candidacy for the Board of Education.
“It has been a true honor to be involved in my children’s schools and in the District, and I look forward to the opportunity to contribute even more,” says Egan, who has lived in the District for 20 years. “My husband, Shaun, and I moved here entirely based on the Cherry Creek School District and the opportunities we knew our children would have.”
Three of Egan’s children are graduates of the Cherry Creek School District and one currently attends a district school.
Egan’s experience covers school, district and community levels. She completed the Cherry Creek School District Leadership Cherry Creek program this May. In addition, she received Cherry Creek High School’s Exceptional Volunteer Award this year. She served on Belleview Elementary’s PTCO, including VP of Fundraising, and as PTCO VP-Elect, Co-President and Parliamentarian. During this time, she also served as the building coordinator for the District’s 3A/3B election in 2008 and spent many hours in her children’s classrooms as a room parent and volunteer. She has been part of the Cherry Creek Community Legislative Network since she became involved in the District 19 years ago.
At Campus Middle School, Egan was the PTCO’s VP of Volunteers for two years, before moving to Cherry Creek High School PTCO as Secretary for two years, and President-Elect, President and Past President for three years. She has been employed as her HOA’s Executive Director since 2013 and is proud to have been a founding member and VP of TeamMates for Boys’ Team Charity Mile High.
“When we moved to Greenwood Village, I was fortunate to stay home with our children and I turned my energy to serving in many capacities within our children’s schools, the Cherry Creek School District, and our community. Our neighborhood schools are truly the building blocks of our communities, the reason our property values remain so high and the communities where our children want to return with their own children. I am still learning, but very much look forward to the work ahead. Cherry Creek is doing a great job; I know there are challenges ahead, but I want to give back and help keep the District strong,” Egan says.
Egan received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1989 from Carroll College in Helena, Montana. After graduating from college, she worked in Washington, DC, for Senator Max Baucus. Upon marriage, she moved to Salt Lake City and worked for Mayor Deedee Corradini. She moved to Denver in 1993 and went to work for the National Civic League. She then worked for Governor Romer as his Education Policy Advisor for four years. Egan earned her Master’s degree from the University of Denver in 1998.
Egan will be a candidate on the November 5, 2019, ballot for the Cherry Creek School District Board of Education Director District A, one of the school district’s five geographic areas. All registered voters in the school district are eligible to vote for all school board members, regardless of geographic region.
