As part of the School Board Recognition Month, Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA) recognized Board President Peggy Douglas and Board Member Scotty Hunt for their participation in their workshops and sessions. By proclamation of Governor Inslee, January is School Board Recognition Month proclaiming, "It's a great time to recognize our elected community members who selflessly give their time and energy in support of high-quality public schooling for our youth. This January, we're encouraging all members of the community to thank a board member. Please thank them for playing a critical civic role that helps form the bedrock of our democracy - public education. As a crucial bridge between the local community and the school district, their efforts are instrumental in helping all of us realize the hopes and dreams we have for the children of our community."
