Silva’s Active Summer

Sponsored by:

Even during the Summer break, Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools, Joe Silva, remains active.

Silva was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

Silva overwhelmingly won the June election for Superintendent. Of course it helped that, as an incumbent, he ran unchallenged.

Last week, Silva was mountain biking in the Lake Tahoe area with his son-in-law, when he hit a large area of loose sand and fell, dislocating his shoulder. Silva has been placing his arm in a bright blue sling, but is noticing rapid improvement with each passing day.

Starting on Monday July 19th, Silva is looking forward to the second year of “Mad About Science” which is a Summer program that takes place at Columbia College. Up to 100, third through eighth grade students will enjoy hands-on science projects with local elementary teachers, who are teamed up with Columbia College instructors.

Silva said that the response has been so positive for the free student program (underwritten by Front Porch) that “Mad About Math” will debut in just a couple of weeks.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
