January is School Board Recognition Month
Posted on 01/12/2015

The Ohio School Boards Association is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in Jan. 2015 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 Bucyrus City School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities. “Our district is very 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 personally thank the Bucyrus City School District Board of Education members for all of their efforts in providing the leadership for our schools.”

The men and women serving the Bucyrus City School District and their years of service are as follows:

  • Mr. Doug Schiefer – 11 years
  • Dr. Paul Johnson – 8.5 years (non consecutive)
  • Mr. Adam Stone – 3 years
  • Mr. Bradley Murtiff – 2 years
  • Ms. Traci Wetterau – 1 year

Board of Education members will be recognized prior to the start of the varsity boys basketball game against Ridgedale Jan. 23 at Alex Kish Gymnasium. Bucyrus board members received certificates of commendation from the Ohio School Boards Association during the regular January meeting.

Again, 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/.
