January is School Board Member Recognition Month in Arkansas

(Mansfield) — The Arkansas School Boards Association (ASBA) announced that January is School Board Member Recognition Month in Arkansas.  School board members play an essential role in our community. Mansfield will join other districts in Arkansas in celebration of our board by thanking them for the time, talents, and knowledge they bring to our district and for their commitment to the families and children of our community.


“Our board members assume a crucial role in representing our students and advocating for public education,” said Joe Staton, Superintendent.  “We are very proud of our members, and Arkansas School Board Recognition Month is a great time to recognize them and celebrate their accomplishments.


Staton added that elected school board members give our Mansfield citizens a voice in education decision-making.  “While we make a special effort to show our appreciation in January, their contribution is a year-round commitment.”


The members serving our district are as follows: Rick Nicodemus, president; Owen Edwards, vice-president; Lesli Baggett, Secretary; Steve Hattabaugh, member, and Kylie Efurd, member.


The school members were recognized at the January school board meeting and presented certificates in appreciation of their valuable service.
