January is School Board Appreciation Month in North Carolina.
School board members play a vital role in our communities and schools throughout the state. They spend countless hours of their time and talents toward the advancement of public education. They are extraordinary people who tackle the enormous job of governing school districts, and their actions and decisions affect the present and future lives of our children.
Board members contribute hundreds of hours each year leading their districts. The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours school board members spend in leading their districts. They are required to attend seminars and training sessions to keep abreast of the latest trends in educational leadership and are deeply involved in community activities, visiting the schools in their district, and attending extracurricular events.
As a thank you, Pamlico County Schools has created a video in honor of our school board members. Thank you for your dedication to the students and the future of Pamlico County.
