COLUMBUS--The Ohio School Boards Association is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January 2013 to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our society.
School Board Recognition Month honors the members of Ohio’s 718 city, exempted village, local and joint vocational boards of education and educational service centers governing boards for their commitment to providing quality public education to Ohio’s school children.
The Arcanum-Butler Local School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities.
“The Arcanum-Butler School community benefits from the dedication of our local board members,” said Arcanum-Butler Treasurer Matt Huffman. “These public servants are elected to serve by local citizens and receive little compensation for their efforts.”
Arcanum Superintendent John Stephens stated, “Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation to our local school board members, we recognize their contributions reflect a year-round commitment on their part. They are dedicated individuals who are committed to the continuing success of our school and students here at Arcanum-Butler.”
Ed Everman and Lonnie Norris have both served on the Arcanum-Butler Local Board since 1998. Tracy Fout began serving in 2010, Mark Trask in February of 2011 and Bev Delk in January of 2012.
