Messina to Run for Hart School Board to Continue Solid Efforts in Education

Santa Clarita, CA: Joe Messina has been on the Hart School Board for 9 years, serving the Santa Clarita Valley with the express purpose of aiding our students in achieving the dreams they wish to pursue. It is for this reason that Mr. Messina once again seeks reelection for the Hart School Board, to continue the hard work and effort he has put into developing and nurturing programs for our youth.

Mr. Messina has worked diligently to get an advocate for all children throughout the Hart District to ensure that those kids usually overlooked are given every opportunity to succeed and find their future path. Having raised children in the Santa Clarita Valley, and now aiding in the care of his grandchildren, Joe Messina understands and realizes the challenges that parents face on a daily basis to create safe, nurturing and consistent environments for every child.

It is his true dedication to the children of our community that has led to his involvement in creating key positions within the district, as well as developing and spearheading programs to develop a consistently wonderful education experience:

  • Spearheaded “Hart-to-Home”, a program that allows children to “home school” while allowing them to maintain family obligations, begin career development, and graduate with a diploma from their local high school for continued future success.
  • Instrumental in the creation of the Career Technical Education Director position, to ensure that technology education curriculum is developed and maintained for students whose career paths may not require a 4-year degree.
  • Led the drive for the donation of almost $100,000 worth of manufacturing equipment to Saugus High.
  • Has been a huge proponent of creating and updating Hart District Career Tech Education Programs across the district to ensure students have competitive and current knowledge.
  • Kept his promise to ensure that Castaic High School would be a community high school with a Career Tech Education Building with flexible solutions to ensure updates could be made quickly.

Joe Messina will continue to work hard for our students, and create opportunity for every student in the Hart District to ensure success and realization of career dreams and bright futures.
