Sydne Mullings announces her plans to seek election to the Issaquah School Board for District 4.  Ms. Mullings states “As a parent with two children in the District, I believe that every family, whether they are longtime residents or newer to the community, should fully experience the excellence of the Issaquah School District and have an opportunity to participate in developing its future vision.”

Following a rigorous selection process, Ms. Mullings was appointed interim School Board Director in March 2019 to fill a vacated seat.  “Since my appointment, I have focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the work of the District and where opportunities exist for even stronger positive impact. “

Ms. Mullings and her family moved to Issaquah in 2014. She immediately became involved in community service and supporting local youth. She presently serves as a Board Member for After School All-stars – Puget Sound, an organization that provides programming for at-risk middle school youth in the Renton, Kent and Tukwila school districts.

In Ms. Mullings’ seven years as a Board Member at Revive Center for Housing and Healing, she served on the Finance committee and focused on long range planning to meet the organization’s mission of eradicating homelessness in the city of Chicago.

Technology is also a passion for Ms. Mullings.  She holds a Master of Science Degree in Human-Computer Interaction from DePaul University, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in International Politics from Penn State University, and has spent the last 20 years working in the Healthcare, Financial Services and Professional Services industries. In Ms. Mullings’ professional career, she has held roles in enterprise consulting, large scale program management and people management. Currently, Ms. Mullings works at Microsoft Corporation, as Senior Director responsible for leading business transformation and driving operational excellence in its professional services organization. “I have significant experience in partnering with others in helping them to identify new opportunities and evaluate potential solutions to help reach goals. I would value the opportunity to continue to leverage this experience with the Issaquah School District.”

The Issaquah School District serves students in Issaquah, Bellevue, Sammamish, Newcastle, Renton and Unincorporated King County. The School Board Elections will be held Tuesday, November 5th, 2019.
