January is School Board Recognition Month in the State of Ohio and is sponsored by the Ohio School Boards Association.
School board members are ordinary people who have an extraordinary dedication to our public schools. It is important we thank them for their efforts. Too often we forget the personal sacrifices school board members routinely make and the important role school board members play in assuring local control over our public schools. Representing the tradition of a representative republic, school board members are our connection to influencing how our public schools are governed. The local school board is a strong advocate for public schools and is responsible for communicating the needs of the school district to the public and the public’s expectations to the district. Their hard work has not gone unnoticed and is very much appreciated.
Thank you to our current serving members of the Preble Shawnee Local School District Board of Education:
Charlie Biggs, Nick Duskey, Gary Rader, Julie Singleton, Jeff Wood
At the Organizational Meeting, Julie Singleton was voted Board President and Jeff Wood Vice President. Student Member Chad Doran gave a presentation.
