Meet The School Board
About Me: My name is Amanda Viebrock and I joined the Waterville School Board in 2017. I grew up in Waterville and attended Waterville Elementary and High School. Upon graduation I attended Washington State University and in 2013 purchased Waterville Family Foods.
I have a 7-year-old daughter attending Waterville Elementary; this is not the only reason I am interested in serving on the school board but also because I would like to see our youth have the same opportunity to succeed as I did nearly twenty years ago. Many things have changed since I attended school here and I appreciate the progressiveness this district has taken as far as programs offered and being a “Leader In Me” school. I look forward in being part of the team that is responsible for creating community-wide visions and goals and working toward reaching the districts goals in student improvement and achievement. All in all I am particularly pleased to serve in the community I call home.
About Me: I joined the Waterville School Board in 2011. I have lived in Douglas County since 1990, and Waterville since 2010. I grew up in Redmond, WA. Graduated from Redmond HS, then went on to Washington State University where I earned my Finance degree. I have 2 sons, my oldest is a 2015 graduate of Waterville HS, and my youngest is a senior this year. I have always been very active in the schools my kids have attended (Orondo prior to Waterville), as a classroom aide, field trip chaperone, PTO officer, and Levy committee member. Thru my involvement in the Orondo School District for 7 years I came to appreciate the struggles of a small school, from the staff, parent and student perspective. Maintaining a healthy budget balance while meeting each student’s individual academic needs can be very difficult and requires creative leadership and the ability to think outside the box. I intended to become involved with the Waterville School in some capacity when the opportunity presented itself to fill a school board position. I am very proud to be part the Waterville Community and look forward to working with a collaborative, forward thinking group of board members all focused on making decisions to allow our students to thrive during their time at Waterville School and be prepared for success beyond high school, whether that be directly to the job force, or to some form of continuing education. I have witnessed the amazing leadership our students are capable of and can’t wait to see the contributions they make to this world!
About Me: I was born and raised in Waterville and after graduating from Waterville High School I attended Central Washington University where I earned a degree in business administration. I currently serve as the auditor and chief distribution system accountant for Douglas County PUD. My wife and I moved back to Waterville in 2009 and have three young boys.
About Me: I have been a resident of NCW since 1968 but have a very diverse background in both farming and business.
I completed high school in 1959 and started my farming career before graduating. After farming for four years, I moved and was employed at Hanford, WA for General Electric Company. This was followed by a move to a farm in Brazil, South America where I planted plateau rice.
In 1968, I moved my family to Wenatchee, WA. I have four grown children, all proud graduates of Waterville School District. I am also blessed with 11 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grandchildren.
I am very interested in the Education of children of all ages, primarily in vocational Technical areas of study.
