Meet the Board
Bayfield School District 10 Jt-R
Board of Education
Rebecca Parnell has lived in southwest Colorado for most of her life. She graduated from Ignacio High School, works as a real estate agent at Bayfield Realty, and is the proud mother of three Bayfield students.
While Rebecca is new to the school board—initially answering the call for a temporary board member and winning her first election in November 2021—she has a long history of public service in this community. In the past, she has volunteered to coach youth soccer, started a community food pantry, and participated in school district hiring committees. Rebecca brings her passion for the community, her degrees in business and marketing, and her experiences as a Bayfield parent into her new role and is excited to be a part of Bayfield School District in this capacity!
In her spare time, you can find her paddle boarding at the lake, watching her children’s sporting events, and hanging out with her family on their ranch.
