Idaho Supt. of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra

"The Idaho Federation of Republican Women is a highly respected, grassroots organization who donated $5000 to help support my election as Idaho's 25th Superintendent of Public Instruction. IDFRW is a powerful organization. They believe that women deserve a voice in politics as well as on important topics such as education. After all - an educated woman is a very influential woman. I am very proud and honored to have the support of such an engaging and empowering women's organization."

– Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra, member of Ada County Republican Women, Idaho
