Board of education honored during special recognition month

The Mansfield Senior High chamber orchestra serenaded the Mansfield City Schools Board of Education Tuesday night in honor of National School Board Recognition Month.

      Superintendent Stan Jefferson surprised the board of education Tuesday evening by honoring the entire board as Mansfield City Schools’ Every Student, Every Day champion for the month.

      January is National School Board Recognition Month.

      “No other area of public service has a greater impact on our community than those who guide the work of assuring our children’s educational success,” Jefferson said.

      “Serving on the board of education requires dedication and commitment. It demands countless hours of study and an immense amount of energy.

      “Board members accept these responsibilities voluntarily,” Jefferson said. “They work with administrators, teachers, support staff and parents to ensure the best education possible for the young people of our community.”

      Jefferson expressed the district’s thanks to the board and mentioned each by name: Renda Cline, president; Gary Feagin, vice president, Chris Elswick, Sheryl Weber and Linda Golden. He also thanked recent board member Judy Forney, who was in the audience.

      Each board member and Forney received a commemorative plaque, certificate and potted plant.
