POMEROY — Members of the Meigs Local Board of Education were honored at an appreciation dinner held last week in the Meigs High School cafeteria.
Superintendent Rusty Bookman spoke in appreciation of the board members and presented each one with a memento of the occasion. He congratulated members on their dedication to the School District describing them as “ordinary citizens with extraordinary dedication to the Meigs Local School District.”
“Today local school boards continue to do the most important work of the communities — that of educating our youth,” said Bookman.
He commended the members for putting in long hours at school board meetings, attending extracurricular events, going to seminars and being involved in other community activities that help promote a positive image of the school district.
“The Meigs Local School District administration, faculty and staff would like to thank the Meigs Local School Board for your dedication, hard work and commitment to the education of our students,” he concluded.
Recognized during the regular school board meeting which immediately followed the dinner was Harley Fox,a senior cosmetology student, who has been elected Southeast Regional Vice President for Skills U.S.A.
