Betty Harmon

By John Hernandez

Betty Harmon, long time Oracle School District 2 Governing Board member, has resigned her position on the Oracle School Board for personal reasons, effective June 1, 2013.

Betty has been involved with the Oracle School District for many years and has worked diligently to improve the district and support the children.

Her son-in-law, Dennis Blauser, Principal at Mt. Vista School, spoke during the Call to the Public at Monday’s Board meeting, and spoke in admiration about Betty.

“As you know,” Blauser said, “Betty Harmon is ending her more than seven-year tenure as an Oracle School Board member. Betty began her professional career as a teacher and mother of four children. Always the highest of achievers and perhaps the most brilliant person I have ever met, Betty took a hiatus from teaching and entered Law School at the University of Arizona. Betty’s forte was school law and she was the head legal counsel for Tucson Unified School District for many years. As is Betty’s way, she handled this very difficult job with class and composure. Everything Betty has ever done she has done with class and dignity.”

Blauser continued, “The thing I respect most about Betty, besides her unparalleled intelligence is that throughout her career and Board tenure, no matter what the circumstances and obstacles stood in the way, she always put children first and has always strived to do the ‘right thing.’”
