Thanking our All-Star Board Members

Check out the video that our middle school students made to express their gratitude for our All-Stars School Board members

In January we celebrate School Board Recognition Month. Thank you to our Kenston Board Members, Neysa Gaskins, Beth Krause, Tom Manning, Bill Timmons and Beth Ward for the countless hours and immeasurable energy that they spend to assure that our schools are providing the best education possible for the children of our community.

Board members make policy, approve contracts with employees, choose curriculum, adopt budgets and select a superintendent and treasurer to administer the district. They do all these tasks with the emphasis on what’s best for the children they serve. Being an effective school board member is no easy task, especially in today’s climate of change and challenge. School board members need to be knowledgeable about many complex education and social issues, and carry out initiatives and directives from both federal and state governments. To face these demands of governing our public schools, they give countless hours of personal time.

Our school board members do make a difference in our community, for every child, every day. And so we say thank you.
