Several GCS School Board members earned recognition by the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA) for achievement in the association’s 2015–2016 Boardmanship Institute.
Joy Grayson, Glenda Morrison-Fair, Lisa Wells, and Kenneth Baxter reached Level Four by earning 200 points within four consecutive years or less. Level Four recipients receive a certificate and pin with a blue stone.
Derek Lewis, Dr. Crystal Ball O’Connor, and Pat Sudduth reached Level Two by earning 40 points within one year. Level Two recipients receive a certificate and silver pin.
SCSBA Boardmanship Institute offers a year-round training curriculum to help board members develop skills and stay abreast of state and national education issues. Board members can achieve up to six levels of recognition by earning points that are accrued annually for participation in statewide conferences and training provided at the local level. Workshops focus on school law, advocacy and legislation, improving board operations, leadership for improving student achievement, and other timely topics.
Statewide, SCSBA recognized 162 school board members for reaching one of six levels for the 2015–2016 year with certificates of achievement and a lapel pin designated their level of accomplishment in the institute.
SCSBA is the statewide professional organization serving as a source of information, training and advocacy for the state’s 81 school district boards, county boards and state special schools.
