GCSD board, staff thank retiring board members for service

GREENVILLE – Following the Greenville City School Board’s Dec. 12 regular meeting the board, staff and administration hosted a “thank you” buffet with a parting gift for retiring board members Ben Studabaker, Sue Bowman and Cindy Scott.

A variety of delicacies were prepared and served by the high school’s hospitality students.

District Superintendent Doug Fries said it is with “great honor” that we recognize (these individuals) “for their dedication and support of our district through their tenure as board members.

“They have set aside countless hours from their personal lives for the good of our community and students. They are truly a source of pride for our District. Thank you to each of them for their service.”

Board member Fred Matix acknowledged it’s easy to criticize but there are always two sides to the story.

“Let me tell you Cindy, Sue and Ben have their heart in the right place for the students, parents, classified and certified staff, administration and taxpayers. We will miss the 26 years of experience on the Board that has helped make Greenville Schools what it is today and always striving to make it better educationally.”

“I want to thank you for the time and commitment you have given our school system. Many times you, as Board members, have put the educational and school concerns, issues and meetings before your family. Thanks to your families for being a big supporter of you and sharing you.

“You are still an integral part of the Green Wave Pride in this school system and community.”

In other business Supt. Fries commended the junior high vocal music students, fifth and sixth grade band students and the Wavaires for excellent performances; the junior high NJROTC cadets for a successful pass and review, and the senior high varsity cheerleaders for their first place win in the GWOC North Competition.

The ballot language for the District’s proposed tax levy (renewal) to be presented to the voters on May 6, 2014 was approved.

Donations totaling nearly $5,600 for various District departments and programs were accepted with appreciation.

Matix was approved as President Pro-tempore for the Board’s organizational meeting Jan. 9, 2014, 6 p.m.
