Good Public Relations Is A Key To Success

Anytime we can keep others informed of the good things that are being done, it develops good feelings and trust, and it draws people into your camp.

And when we put out the negative, even though we say we don't want to hear it, we do develop an ill feeling, even if what is being said is untrue.

That is why there is so much negative political talk put out by the media or our opponents. Eventually people will quit thinking about logic, and they will begin voting against everything they originally stood for.

I am happy to see at West Central, board members have developed a Public Relations Committee to see how they can best spread the good things that are being done there. Already, the board sent out 3550 newsletters to keep the public informed of their progress, and they are developing ways to reach more people outside the school to let people know they are serious about education, even in educating the public. If one more student joins the school district because of the good things they hear happening there, that is $5,000 more for the school district, and more money means more programs. Good P.R., it's a key to all our successes.
