Class of 2019 Endorsed Candidate: Diana Autry
Diana Autry is a long-time advocate for the students of Akron City Schools. She has had two children go through this school system, and participated in its PTA. Diana is also a key organizer of the Buchtel Stadium Project. The goal of this project is to provide more funding for the Butchel Stadium as a way to engage students in athletics and teach them important life skills. It also aims to create a tighter-knit community and stimulate the local economy and revenue for local sports teams. She has been employed at Akron Children’s Hospital since 2002, and has worked in the Children’s After Hours Department since 2002. Diana’s agency and passion that she has already shown would very well translate to the Akron Board of Education!
