Slade-Troutman’s past service includes vice-president of the Kiwanis Club, grand jury pro-tem, Sierra Nevada Children’s Services, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Nevada County Business and Professional Women, Court Appointed Child Advocates Fundraiser, Produced/Hosted NCTV program “Hometown USA,” four years station president, FREED fundraiser and Sunday School teacher/church choir.

“As a board member, it’s my responsibility to oversee taxpayer funds, advocating accessibility, accountability, transparency and the public’s right to know,” Slade-Troutman stated in the release.

“I will continue advocating for student programs, responsible leadership and parent/teacher concerns. Every action I take as a member of the County Board of Education will be done in the best interest of our students. After all, it’s about the kids!”
