Edgard Hitti

District D Candidate

Hi! My name is Edgard Hitti and I am a long-time resident of Reno.  My life story is one that epitomizes the importance of education. I grew up in Lebanon, amidst civil war and political turmoil. My father worked three jobs to support the family, while my mother was busy ensuring we were not only surviving, but thriving emotionally and academically, sometimes helping us with homework in a basement bomb bunker with no electricity. We lived a modest but comfortable life. Throughout their struggles, my parents successfully passed on life lessons to my siblings and I that outshine any mathematical measure of fortune. Perhaps the lesson that resonated with me the most is that a solid academic foundation is key to a successful future.   

I left Lebanon in the late 90’s to attend UNR, and graduated with a Masters Degree in Engineering. I credit my success at UNR in large part to the strong foundational academics received during my formative years.  To me, grade school education is not only about learning math and reading basics, but also where love of country and community is taught.  It is that foundation that provided me with the analytical skills necessary to succeed in college and to grow my career.  It is also during my grade school education that I learned the importance of giving back to the community and was fortunate enough to be in a position to raise funds to support research relating to recycling and sustainability at UNR that also benefited the local community. 

My bond with the Reno community was further solidified when I met my wonderful wife, Kami. Kami grew up in Reno and is a proud graduate of Jessie Beck, Caughlin Ranch, Swope, Reno High and UNR.  We have three sons, born in Reno and currently attending public schools in our area. She also shares my passion for volunteering in our children’s schools, fundraising for various charities close to our hearts and helping in our community church.  

My wife & I strongly believe in the importance of our public school system and have been volunteering for years including getting involved in the Parent Faculty Association (PFA) where I served as VP, President and Past President (advisor). These positions allowed me to raise funds to support staff and students in many areas such as Technology, PE and Intervention Teachers, but also gave me the insight into the day-to-day shortcomings and problems most schools are facing.  I’m running for WCSD Trustee District D to ensure that the education system that embraced and motivated me will refocus on the fundamentals of education, mainly Math, Science, Language Arts and History, that will ensure the future success of all the students in our district and the community for years to come.
