Perry Community School … RECOGNIZES BOARD MEMBERS
The Perry Community School District is joining with other communities throughout Iowa this spring to honor its elected school board members during Iowa School Board Recognition Month. This month recognizes that Iowa’s volunteer school board members are providing leadership, through responsibilities ranging from strong financial stewardship to ensuring high-quality curriculum, to make sure all students are prepared for a bright future when they graduate.
More than 2,000 men and women serve on local public school boards in Iowa, guiding the education of over 506,336 young people and overseeing a combined budget of $6.1 billion.
“These men and women volunteer countless hours of unpaid time to provide the best possible education for our students, and we want to recognize that in this community,” said Perry School Superintendent, Lynn Ubben. “As your elected leaders, they represent you in their continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making for our public schools. Too often the efforts of school board members go unrecognized and unrewarded, so let us take this opportunity to thank them for their service.”
The Perry Community School District is very lucky to have such competent and caring board members. Please join Perry students and staff in thanking President- Dan Wilhelmi, Vice President- Jim Lutmer, and Directors Kenia Alarcon, Marjean Gries, and Kyle Baxter.
