Erin Cranor was elected to the Board of School Trustees in 2010 to represent District G. She holds a bachelor's degree in human biology, with a minor in chemistry, from Brigham Young University. While earning her master's degree from the same university, she helped document a fatal form of dwarfism in a research collaboration with Harvard University. Youth are at the center of her successful technical writing business, her civic involvement, and her most important work as a parent of four CCSD students.
Career highlights so far include bringing state-of-the-art computer labs to Boys & Girls Clubs here in Southern Nevada, and assisting youth development organizations in other states with successful fiscal turnarounds. She has chaired the Nevada Legislative Audit Oversight Committee, chaired the Attendance Zone Advisory Commission, served as president of the CORE Community Education Advisory Board and also of the PTA at Tomiyasu Elementary School, directed outdoor youth rappelling and archery, helped coach children's sports teams, and actively volunteered at the classroom, school district, and state levels for many years. Cranor speaks and writes Greek and is learning Spanish. A former guest teacher for CCSD, Cranor loves everything about educating young people and helping them equip themselves for bright futures. Erin and her husband, Bud, have been raising their family here since 1995.
