Long-term school directors were honored by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association at the December 21, 2016 Reynolds School Board meeting. Pennsylvania school directors were honored across the state for a range in years of service from 8 to 36 years.
Ms. Janet Smith of West Salem Township and Mr. J. Bradley Miller of Delaware Township/Fredonia Borough, members of the Reynolds School Board, received recognition for 8 years of service. Certificates of Recognition were presented adding them to the Pennsylvania School Boards Association “Honor Roll of School Board Service.”
The PA School Boards Association commended the recipients for their years of dedicated volunteer service to children, the community and public education.
School directors continually are spending more of their personal time on school-related activities. Fifty-four percent of them devote 16 hours or more a month to school board business. That shows a real commitment on their part. They put in, on the average, about two and a half working days per month of nonpaid, volunteer service as school directors. They exemplify leadership and dedication, giving unselfishly to their communities, students and the public schools. Their efforts, along with those of their fellow board members, reflect their dedication to giving our children the opportunity to gain knowledge through the best educational system possible, she added.
