 January is School Director Recognition Month

Have you thanked a school board member lately?  January is School Director Recognition Month, a recognition that honors members of local boards of education for their commitment to provide quality public education for Pennsylvania’s school children.

School directors generously contribute their time and talents toward the advancement of public education.  They establish policies that provide the framework for our public schools.  They represent their local communities and attend sometimes lengthy and challenging meetings, conferences and institutes for professional learning and understanding of public education.

These dedicated volunteers reside in our community.  They are our friends, neighbors, community leaders, parents and engaged senior citizens.  Although communities make a special effort to show appreciation to school directors in January, their contribution is a year-round commitment and deep appreciation is extended to them always.

Take this opportunity to help acknowledge our public servants who make the time to share their vision and voice about the future of Pennsylvania children.

The Board of School Directors for the Shippensburg Area School District are:

Mr. Herbert Cassidy, Board President

Mr. Greg McMullen, Board Vice-President

Mr. Andrew Alosi

Mr. Dwayne Burt

Mr. Mark Buterbaugh

Dr. Thomas Enderlein

Mr. Donald Hilbinger

Mrs. Marlyn Reed

Mr. Charles Suders
