The Lowndes County Schools System is joining in a statewide celebration to salute the efforts of local school board members. The week of March 18-22, 2013, has been proclaimed School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia. The weeklong observance calls attention to the contributions of local boards of education.
“Citizens elect board members to represent the community’s voice on education matters and to help set the vision for the school district,” said Wes Taylor, Superintendent. “Our board spends countless hours fulfilling its responsibilities and working together to continually improve our education system.
“As the men citizens elect to represent them in education matters, our local school board represents a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in education,” said Taylor. The men serving our school district are: Fred Wetherington, Chair; Brian Browning, Vice Chair; Dave Clark, Fred Davis, Mike Davis, Philip Poole and Jason Wisenbaker. These men were honored at the March 11 school board meeting.
