January is School Board Recognition Month in Ohio and the Bucyrus School District is preparing to honor the members of its school board.
“Our district is incredibly fortunate to have a dedicated Board of Education that works closely with parents, education professionals and community members to create the educational vision we want for our students,” Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “On behalf of the students, staff, and community, I would like to thank the Bucyrus City School District Board of Education members for their effort and dedication in providing the leadership for our schools.”
The Ohio School Boards Association is celebrating School Board Recognition Month 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 719 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 men and women serving the Bucyrus City School District and their years of service are as follows:
• Doug Schiefer – 12 years
• Paul Johnson – 9.5 years
• Adam Stone – 4 years
• Bradley Murtiff – 3 years
• Traci Wetterau – 2 years
Board of Education members will be recognized prior to the start of the varsity boys basketball game against Seneca East Jan. 22 at Alex Kish Gymnasium. Bucyrus board members will receive certificates of commendation from the Ohio School Boards Association during the regular board meeting in January.
The Bucyrus City School District would like to publicly thank these board members for their dedicated service to our children and our staff. For more information regarding School Board Recognition month contact Kimmel at (419) 562-4045 or visit www.ohioschoolboards.org/.
