school board

     Missourians benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by the more than 3,600 local school board members in every community across the state.  These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts.  As citizens who serve students and represent their communities, school board members face complex and demanding challenges.   

     During the month of March, communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of local boards of education during School Board Recognition Month as proclaimed by Governor Parson. 

     “Local school boards play a vital leadership role in providing our students with the finest possible education,” says MSBA Executive Director Melissa Randol. “We thank school board members for their commitment to their communities and to the students in their school districts across Missouri.” 

     School Board Recognition Month is sponsored by the Missouri School Boards’ Association.  The Missouri School Boards’ Association is a private, not-for-profit organization that exists to help school boards ensure all students succeed.

    Richland would like to thank our local board members:  Warren Powell, Amber Johnson, Tim Sherrer, Bruce Goodrich, Jordan Walters, Barbara Warren and Bart Warren
