School Board Leaders Honored
By Superintendent James Ramsey

School Board Recognition Month, in January, is celebrated by local and Career Tech school districts in Oklahoma, as over 2700 elected school board members are honored by their schools and communities for untiring dedication to school governance.

The foundation of school leadership is ensuring equal learning opportunities for all students. We're proud of our district, and School Board Recognition Month is the time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected trustees.

In the Perkins-Tryon school district, school board members must develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They bear responsibility for an annual budget over $9 million, 1,477 students, 170 employees and 4 building sites.

Our board members make decisions that affect our students and millions in educational expenditures. They preserve the core of our democracy - and that public education is the great equalizer."

The men serving Perkins-Tryon School and their years of service are President, W.E. "Scrub" Dollins, 10 years; Vice President, Alan Nietenhoefer, 4 years; Clerk, Rick Lomenick, 13 years; Member, Winfrey Kinzie, 15 years; and Member, Dustin Bledsoe, 7 years.
