Glenda Morrison-Fair, a board member for Greenville County Schools, has been recognized by the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA) for 10 years of school board service.
Mrs. Morrison-Fair was elected to the board to represent Area 23. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Math from Hampton University and a teaching certificate from Park University. Mrs. Morrison-Fair has received the Milken Award and is a lifetime member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Mrs. Morrison-Fair is one of 35 school board members from throughout the state who will receive special lapel pins for reaching the 10 or 15-year benchmark. Another 27 will commemorate their 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th or 45th year of school board service.
Veteran school board members provide vision and valuable leadership for school districts. SCSBA and the local boards are happy to honor these board members for their long-term dedication to improving student achievement in their communities.
In January 2018, in South Carolina, about 43 percent of the state’s 668 school district and affiliate board members had served four years or less, and about 32 percent had 10 years or more of board service.
SCSBA is a non-profit organization serving as a source of information and a statewide voice for boards governing the 81 school districts.
