January is Board Appreciation Month
Troy Schools Staff and students would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank our seven board of education members who serve the Troy USD 429 school district. January is School Board Recognition Month, and Troy Schools joins other public schools across our state to say thank you to these public servants who are leading success in our community.
“These extraordinary seven individuals provide the leadership and vision to make great things happen in our schools,” said Patrick McKernan, Superintendent of Schools “They volunteer countless hours by attending meetings, reading reports and discussing ideas. They also participate in workshops and seminars so that they can stay on top of education issues and trends. They provide an invaluable service to our community.”
Please take time to thank them if you see them. Their dedication and commitment to kids goes well beyond the one meeting a month. With over 70 plus years combined board of education service, the Troy USD 429 board always considers the kids first and foremost in their decision making. Their job is challenging and many times goes unrecognized. Even though they are in the public eye, most of the time their decisions are questioned instead of appreciated. Our school board members develop policies and make tough decisions that help shape the future of our education system. Thank you to Nathan Geiger, Warren Grable, Jennifer Luedke, Sandra Reel, Sherman Smith, Nikia Weber, and Jason Winder for their willingness to give back to the community and the school district!
