Bryan, April, Lindsey, and Brady Gebhardt
I am a longtime Fremont resident, a graduate of Fremont’s public schools, and a management professional. As a parent, I understand the importance of a quality education for every student.

I serve now as a School Board Trustee on the Fremont Unified School District Board of Education (elected in 2008). I served as a trustee on the Fremont Board of Education in 2006. I have been involved with Fremont schools since 1991 when I served as a Student Board Member.

A Washington High School graduate, my family now lives less than a block away from my alma mater. At UC Berkeley I received a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and have been working in the software industry since 1996. For more information about my professional career please take a look at my resume.

I am the proud father of a little girl born in 2004 and a baby boy born in 2007. They will both be Fremont students!

My Vision

  • Enable all students to reach their full potential – provide equity and opportunity for all students.
  • Utilize funds wisely - Our spending must match our priorities, and the school board must hold the district accountable.
  • Ensure safe schools - Every Fremont School must be safe from violence, discrimination, and bullying, and a well-maintained place to learn.
