The Edmonson County Schools are joining the state's 172 other public school systems to mark Kentucky's 20th observation of January as School Board Member Recognition Month.
When it comes to devotion to what's in the best interest of our students, no community has a finer group of citizen leaders than Lorri Keith, Mickey Johnson, Gary Bagshaw, Alex Ulm and Tonya Jones.
Many people understand that our board is responsible for setting and balancing an eighteen million dollar budget, establishing the directional policy for the school system, deciding on the school year calendar, and acting on concerns raised by the students, employees, parents and taxpayers in our community.
However, most people have no concept of the countless hours each of our board members spend in of study outside of their regular meetings.
