“My focus has always been on improving our schools, enhancing experiences for our students, supporting our staff, and promoting the district. My husband and I chose to raise our children in West Bloomfield, in large part, because of the quality of the public schools. I want to ensure all West Bloomfield students benefit from the same outstanding education that my own children received,” said Ms. Forhan.

Dr. Gerald Hill, WBSD superintendent, said, “Ms. Forhan brings a wealth of knowledge to our Board of Education through her previous years of work and service to our district. We have the utmost confidence she will serve our district proudly both now and in the future.”
