School Board Members Recognized for Service in January
“School Boards: Locally Owned and Operated Since Forever”
Greenville County Schools will join 80 other school districts throughout the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Month in January. Greenville County’s 12 school board members, along with more than 630 elected and appointed school board members throughout South Carolina, will be recognized by schools and communities for their service and dedication to public education.
The theme of this year’s celebration, “School Boards: Locally Owned and Operated Since Forever,” reinforces the roles and responsibilities of school boards and the ownership they take for governing their local public schools. They are elected by the people in their local communities to represent their voice and vision for their public schools.
Greenville County Schools’ Board of Trustees members hold leadership positions both within and outside the district. They develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. The School Board oversees the governance of a school district that serves more than 71,000 students.
The members of Greenville County Schools’ Board of Trustees are:
- Charles J. “Chuck” Saylors, Chairman, Area 20
