The Iowa Association of School Boards recognizes that learning and leadership on the part of school board members make a difference at the board table and for students.
At IASB’s 71st Annual Convention on November 17, the Charles City Community School District board team was honored for making that difference. Through IASB’s Better Boardsmanship Awards Program, four board members received Award of Achievement certificates: President Scott Dight, Vice-President Jason Walker, Robin Macomber, and Lorraine Winterink. The board as a whole also took home a District Award of Achievement plaque. These awards recognize board members who put forth extra time and energy to strengthen their boardsmanship abilities through formal in-service programs, workshops, and other commitments such as advocating with legislators or serving on statewide committees or boards. Dr. Dan Cox, Superintendent of Schools, also completed the requirements and was honored with an Award of Achievement.
IASB Board President Amy Jurrens commended the Charles City board members for their hard work. “Each individual member on this team takes extra steps to make sure they are informed and capable as they strive to improve outcomes for students,” Jurrens said.
Eight superintendents, 103 board members, and seven whole boards were recipients of these acclaimed awards.
