Pattonville school board members recognized for volunteer service

A group of students from Pattonville Heights Middle School attended the Jan. 24 board meeting to thank the school board for its volunteer work. They were on hand to recognize members of the Pattonville Board of Education as part of School Board Recognition Week in Missouri (Jan. 23 through 27).

Vocal music teacher Tracy Baker and his choir students performed songs for the board and also presented the board with thank-you cards written by Pattonville Heights students. Dr. Mike Fulton, superintendent, also thanked the board members for their volunteer service and noted that the board has been recognized statewide for its work on behalf of students.

The Pattonville Board of Education was named a 2016 Outstanding Board of Education for Teaching, Learning and Assessment by the Missouri School Boards' Association (MSBA). The board previously won MSBA's Outstanding Board of Education Award for Governance, Leadership and Accountability in 2013 and the MSBA Outstanding Board of Education Award in 2002. The board was also a finalist for Outstanding Board of Education in 2008 and 2011.

Each year, the state of Missouri sets aside a week in January as School Board Recognition Week to recognize the volunteer work of more than 3,600 men and women who serve on school boards throughout the state. These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts. Honored during the Pattonville recognition were: Ruth Petrov, president; Jeanne Schottmueller, vice president; Ralph Stahlhut, secretary; Andrea Glenn, treasurer; Mary Kay Campbell, director; Brian Gray, director; and Ron Kuschel, director.
