Kentucky will again observe January as School Board Recognition Month and Anderson County Schools will join the celebration, according to a news release.
The Anderson County Board of Education is composed of Chairman Scott Brown (1.5 years), Vice Chairman Roger McDowell (4.5 years), Lee Hahn (8 years), James Sargent (3 years) and Donna Drury (1 year).
“The voters of our community have created a strong group of education leaders in this board,” Superintendent Sheila Mitchell was quoted as saying in the release.
“They are true partners in the work to ensure every child in every classroom can experience high quality teaching and learning.
“When you consider how state and federal funding is shrinking, our school board has faced tremendous challenges, and it hasn’t flinched from its responsibilities,” Mitchell continued in the release.
Across the Commonwealth, Kentucky’s 173 public school systems will use January to recognize the work of the state’s nearly 862 local school board members.
Anderson County Schools plans to recognize and thank its board members at the regular scheduled board meeting to be held Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. in the training room at the board of education.
