To the Editor:
I am writing in support of Dina Shaw’s candidacy for Princeton Council. I have had the privilege of knowing Dina both as a PTO colleague and as a friend since 2003 when she moved to the neighborhood. Over the years, I have watched Dina dive into any project she takes on with a positive attitude and with boundless energy.
As president of the Littlebrook PTO, she recognized there was a need for after school programs and launched a new platform of activities that resulted in robust offerings for all children. Next, Dina was president of the John Witherspoon Middle School PTO. As co-treasurer of the PTO during Dina’s tenure, I personally felt a true sense of purpose and accomplishment as we raised funds to guarantee that all children at JW could attend the Washington, D.C., field trip, regardless of financial need. more
