USD 108 CELEBRATES OUR SCHOOL BOARD LEADERS THIS JANUARY

The job of a school board member is tough, the hours are sometimes long and the thanks are few and far between.

It is all too easy to put off saying “thank you” to this group of individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of our children and grandchildren.

They spend countless hours preparing to make decisions, participating in meetings and attending school activities and events. The locally elected school boarded is deeply rooted in U.S. tradition, as is public education. Our state has a proud tradition of support for public education, and in fact in 1966 the people of Kansas amended our state’s constitution to specifically call for local public schools that are ‘maintained, developed and operated by locally elected boards.’

January is School Board Recognition Month, and USD 108 administration, staff, and student’s express appreciation to these community leaders who volunteer countless hours to provide leadership for our public schools.

Our board of education members lead by example. They do their homework and come prepared to listen to reports and make decisions in the best interest of all children in our community. They also attend specialized professional development to stay on top of education issues and trends, and represent our district on other committees and advocacy events. And they do all of this because they are committed to creating opportunities for all children in our community.

We are grateful to have this opportunity to formally say ‘thank you’ to each of them.

The men and women serving USD 108 are:

Joe L’Ecuyer – president

Rod Stewart – vice president

Kevin Elliott

Jill Hoover

Brad Jones

Rhonda Manley

Brad Owen
