I wholeheartedly endorse Tam Dinh for the position of School Board, Position 5. As an assistant professor at Saint Martin’s University, I have had the privilege to work alongside her and witness her commitment to education and our social work students, first-hand. Under her leadership as Program Director for the Bachelor of Social Work program, our students have come to achieve more than they thought possible. She does this seemingly effortlessly, as she challenges them, awakens their curiosity, and helps them see that they can make their world a kinder, more just place, one person, one courageous act a time. Tam’s vision for our program is ambitious but no less than what our community and students deserve. It is a privilege to work alongside her to bring this vision to reality. She would be an incredible asset to the Mercer Island School Board.
