Meet Autumn Garick
Autumn, a public schools champion, is running to serve our students and community as a Seminole County School Board member. She believes in the power of public schools, specifically Seminole County Public Schools. And when Autumn believes in someone or something she stands up and takes action.
Autumn has committed 21 years to our county schools. She founded the educational theater company, Tales Two Tell and has worked in 30 of 37 Seminole County elementary schools, exciting children about language and learning. She understands the climate and culture of individual schools and the communities they serve through direct experience.
Our premiere school district brought Autumn and her husband Bob to Seminole County over two decades ago. Autumn has volunteered extensively in every grade. Favorite memories include leading art lessons at elementary school, coaching middle schoolers to the Odyssey of the Mind World Championship and announcing the Oviedo Marching Lions at football games and festivals. As a parent of three SCPS graduates, Autumn has experienced the successes and challenges of navigating Seminole County public schools from kindergarten through high school. She knows it takes a team - teachers, parents and staff to ensure every student reaches their fullest potential.
Whether she's reading to students at Goldsboro Elementary, celebrating the Ingrid Burton Hall building dedication or delving into the new Math and Science Curriculum at the district office, Autumn commits herself daily to the success of our area schools. She's prepared to Stand Up, Speak Out and Champion for Seminole County Public Schools.
