January Is Edmonson County School Board Recognition Month
Edmonson Voice Report:
Superintendent Brian Alexander presented KSBA Certificates to Lorri Keith, Mickey Johnson, Alex Ulm, Keith LaMastus and Paul Forester in recognition of January’s School Board Recognition Month.
Kentucky will again observe January as School Board Recognition Month.
"Our board members are responsible for our community’s most precious resource and the key to its future – our children and their educational opportunities," a statement released by the central office for Edmonson County Schools.
The statement also said that these individuals are responsible for making decisions aimed at ensuring that every child in the school district has a chance to be successful both in school and in life.
"Each board member has to keep up with changing education laws and policies and spend hours on professional learning and state-mandated training," the statement said. "The dedication of our Board has never been more evident than during the past year in dealing with the COVID Global Pandemic."
"At a time when state and federal funding continue to shrink, our school board members haven’t flinched in the face of the challenges or shied away from their responsibilities. Our community can be very proud of this team of board members and I’m proud to be their partner in striving for education excellence for our children"
