School Board Recognition Month
The month of January marks the annual observation of School Board Recognition Month -a time to salute the important role and dedication of board members in their volunteer work and celebrate public education. In Madill Public Schools, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They bear responsibility for an annual budget of $15 million, 1800 students, and 215 employees. They carry out the truest form of representative government in our democracy --- volunteer public service --- and they preserve the core of our democratic land, public education. We don’t always recognize the dedication and hard work of these public servants elected to represent us and the interest of our children. Invite them out for coffee. Ask how you might help support your local neighborhood schools. Write your school board members a thank you card. Let them know you appreciate what they do for the kids in Madill Public Schools.
The men and women serving Madill Public Schools are:
President: Mr. Mike Mathis, Vice President: Mr. Clay Savage, Clerk: Dr. Mark Glenn, Vice Clerk: Mrs. Shannon Williams, Member: Mr. Jeff Landgraf.
