SHARONVILLE, OH. January is School Board Recognition Month. Princeton City School District, in partnership with the Ohio School Boards Association, is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January 2018 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 more than 700 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 Princeton City School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities.
“Ohioans benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,400 men and women across the state,” said Dr. Thomas S. Tucker, Superintendent of Princeton City Schools. “These public servants unselfishly contribute their time and talents toward the advancement of public education. They represent a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in public education. Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation to our school board members, we recognize their contributions reflect a year-round commitment on their part.”
“The current Princeton School Board Members are extremely dedicated individuals who are committed to the continuing success of Princeton schools, our students and staff.”
The five outstanding board members serving Princeton City School District are: Ms. Mary Cleveland (President), Ms. Sandy Leach (Vice President), Dr. Lillian Hawkins, Ms. Susan Wyder and Ms. Gina Ruffin Moore.
Dr. Tucker read a proclamation from Governor, John R. Kasich and Lieutenant Governor, Mary Taylor to recognize the board members during Princeton City’s Regular Board meeting, held on Monday, January 8, 2018.
