School Board Members Earn State Recognition

Three GCS School Board members were presented with certificates and pins from the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA) Boardmanship Institute in recognition of their service.

Kenneth Baxter, Greenville County School Board member representing Area 25, received a certificate for achieving Level 1, and Joy Grayson, (Area 17) and Glenda Morrison-Fair (Area 23), each earned a certificate and pin for reaching Level 2 in the Boardmanship Institute.

SCSBA Boardmanship Institute offers a year-round training curriculum to help board members develop skills and stay abreast of state and national educational issues. Workshops focus on school law, advocacy and legislation, improving board operations, leadership for improving student achievement, and other timely topics.

Board members can achieve up to six levels of recognition by earning points that are accrued annually from July through June for participation in statewide conferences and training provided onsite in their district.

SCSBA is the statewide professional organization serving as a source of information, training and voice for the state's 81 school district boards.
