The job of a school board member is tough, the hours long and the thanks few and far between. Too often we forget about the personal sacrifices school board members make. They spend hours in meetings and on committees, advocating for our schools. You may not be aware of the hours spent studying an issue before a board member casts a vote at a board meeting.
You may not know of the phone calls, at home and at work, early in the morning or late at night, from stakeholders seeking information about our district or raising a concern about a situation. These moments are a regular part of school board service outside the board meetings.
As our community joins others across the Commonwealth to mark January as School Board Recognition Month, I wanted to share these insights and ask you – when you see one of our board members – to offer a thank you for all they do for the children of Lincoln County.
