TRIGG COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO HONOR LEADERS DURING
SCHOOL BOARD RECOGNITION MONTH
 

Kentucky will again observe January as School Board Recognition Month and Trigg County Public Schools is joining in the celebration.

The Trigg County Board of Education is composed of Mike Davis, chair; JoAlyce Harper; Donnie Holland; Sharon Simmons; and LaVern Baker.

“The voters of our community have created a special group of education leaders in this board,” said Superintendent Travis Hamby. “They are true partners in the work to ensure every child in every classroom can experience high quality teaching and learning.

“When you consider how state and federal funding is shrinking, our school board has faced tremendous challenges, and it hasn’t flinched from its responsibilities,” Hamby said. “Our community can be very proud of this team of board members, and I’m proud to be their partner working for education excellence for our children.”

Across the Commonwealth, Kentucky’s 173 public school systems will use January to recognize the work of the state’s nearly 862 local school board members.

“The past several years have challenged school leaders – board members and superintendents alike – to support continued academic progress,” said KSBA President Durward Narramore, a member of the Jenkins Independent Board of Education. “In 2013, Education Week’s Quality Counts report ranked Kentucky in the Top 10. Our school board members played a role in that kind of improvement. I’m proud to be a local school board member in this state.”

Trigg County School Board members will be presented with a certificate of appreciation during the board meeting on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014.
