RON RIGGS for TUSD Board Member 2020
BUSINESSMAN, EDUCATOR, COACH, MENTOR, FATHER
My name is Ron Riggs a resident of Torrance for twenty years and a small business owner since 1991 who has a special connection to the city of Torrance. I understand the importance of safe and secure schools for our shareholders, staff members and students in our community. I am passionate about education and an advocate for children to get the best possible start in life. I have always championed our teachers and students needs and know how to deliver it. We must prepare our children for a life in a competitive global environment. Our teachers and students need a school board that stands behind them through technology, innovation and to think outside of the box.
I am a leader, I have had real life leadership experiences for over 30 years in the corporate, public and private sectors with a proven track record. My firm commitment and dedication to the community is based on my five pillars: Leadership, Trust, Accountability, Transparency and Integrity.
I have coached and mentored over 800 high school and college students from our local community positively impacting their lives with Integrity, Life Skills & Family Values. I currently serve on the Los Angeles Harbor College Foundation Board and New Challenge Ministry Board and have served on boards in the past such as the El Camino College Foundation Board (9 year term, 4 years VP & Finance Committee) where we awarded over $800,000.00 a year in scholarships. I am very proud of what TUSD has achieved, and strive to maintain the high standard of education during this time of transformation and change.
I respectfully request your vote and support at this crucial time of uncertainty, such as COVID-19, the opening of schools and a questionable future budget. I will be open minded and always have a unbiased opinion for the task at hand. We will win this next battle to keep Torrance Education and Schools at the top for the 21st century. My organizational, communication and problem-solving capabilities position me to succeed in this role as a TUSD Board Member. The path for building a stronger future is in front of us. As a Seasoned Community Leader, Successful Businessman, Educator, Mentor and a tested School Board Member I am ready to lead day one.
With Love & Respect From Your Son's:
Coach, Life Mentor, Dad and Best Friend - these are the qualities that define our father. As we grew up we had the opportunity to witness our father be a successful businessmen by day and by night be a supportive father to his family while mentoring his many students as he coached sports. Our father has always been very involved in his community giving his time and passion to what he loves and to those in need. We are blessed with 28 & 29 years of unforgettable memories and life lessons we have learned through our fathers passion for life. We truly believe our Father is more than qualified, he is the man this society needs to preserve, maintain and grow our future in a clear direction - TUSD would have a passionate and dedicated leader.
