The Ohio School Boards Association is celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January 2016 to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our society.  School Board Recognition Month honors the members of Ohio’s more than 700 city, exempted village, local and joint vocational boards of education and educational service centers governing boards for their commitment to providing quality public education to Ohio’s school children.

The Westerville City School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to their communities.  “Our board members unselfishly contribute their time and talents toward the advancement of public education,” said Dr. John Kellogg, Superintendent of Westerville City Schools.  “We recognize their contributions reflect a year-round commitment on their part.  They are dedicated individuals who are committed to the continuing success of our schools and students.”

The men and women serving the Westerville City School District are:  Richard W. Bird, Gerrie Cotter, Tracy Davidson, Dr. Nancy Nestor-Baker and Rick Vilardo.  At the Organizational Board Meeting on January 11, Bird was voted in as president and Vilardo was named vice-president.
